The aircraft carrier experience was created with the intention of showing naval aircraft in their natural home, the aircraft carrier.

Take a helicopter transfer and board Ark Royal via Wessex, then explore and experience life on board an operational Flight Deck.


Please note that the Island Tour elements and Experience Chamber remain closed ahead of a significant upgrade due in Summer 2022. As work begins from 9th May 2022, there will be some level of disruption to the flight deck - we apologise for any inconvenience. 

The Museum is hopeful of providing access through the flight deck throughout the development phase, although some access may be restricted. Please telephone the Museum in advance of your visit for a specific update. (tel: 01935 842600).
