Welcome to the Fleet Air Arm Museum - representing the flying arm of the Royal Navy.

The history of the Royal Navy is preserved for the benefit of today's and future generations by the National Museum of the Royal Navy (NMRN) which includes four museums of the Royal Navy (NMRN Portsmouth & HMS Victory, Royal Navy Submarine Museum, Fleet Air Arm Museum and the Royal Marines Museum). Together they tell the story of the Royal Navy - On the Sea, Under the Sea, In the Air and On the Land.

Welcome to the Fleet Air Arm Museum - representing the Royal Navy In the Air. With four exhibition halls, over ninety aircraft and over 2 million records and 30 thousand artefacts the Museum is Europe's largest naval aviation Museum. In addition it houses the first British Concorde which you can go on board, view the cockpit and visit the award winning Aircraft Carrier Experience.



Where the Museum meets theatre Where the Museum meets theatre

The Aircraft Carrier Experience is an award winning tourist attraction within the Museum. It's where Museum meets theatre. You'll 'fly' by helicopter to the replica flight deck of the aircraft carrier HMS ARK ROYAL. On board the Ark Royal you'll see fighter aircraft and two enormous projection screens showing a Phantom strike fighter and a Buccaneer strike bomber taking off and landing. Once on board you will visit the ’Island’ control rooms and bridge and even see a nuclear bomb.

The location of the Museum is at Royal Naval Air Station Yeovilton (also known as HMS Heron) in Somerset. With more flights in and out of RNAS Yeovilton than any other military air station in Europe, you are likely to see aircraft going through their rigorous training procedures.
