Brilliant museum A must visit for fellow aviation "enthusiasts"!There is a wonderful display of aircraft here. Particularly liked the Vulcan and Lightning. Stunning.There are a few huts which contain information specific to different areas and these are well worth a visit.You will be there longer than you think. It really is a great and detailed museum.Also a cafe (very reasonably priced) and gift shop on site.

Fantastic display! Loved the tour of the Hawker Siddeley Nimrod. Clyde, the tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and the history of the Versatile Nimrod is fascinating. They have s wonderfully cared for display of planes including a Vulcan on display outside and much more memorabilia indoors in beautifully collated displays. There is a shop and cafe, friendly helpful staff, if you like planes it’s a must see!

Fantastic! I was so thrilled to visit this lovely museum specifically to see the Air UK exhibits. All of the volunteers are charming and the coffee shop is super but a special thank you to curator Matt Taylor who came in specially to open up the Air UK aircraft for me. The main F27 exhibit is perfect and looks as though she’s ready to take flight with 44 passengers to somewhere like Aberdeen or Jersey. She really is stunning! Thank you Matt and all of the volunteers for their commitment to the Air UK heritage. I salute you.

Great place to visit The volunteers at the museum were very welcoming and knowledgeable. I was told the story by Mike about how the museum received the English Electric Lightening in bits from a scrap yard in Portsmouth. He described how putting it back together was like doing a very large Airfix kit which took several years to complete.I can highly recommend visiting the museum that also has several indoor displays detailing aviation in Norfolk, and a superb Café that is able to provide gluten free food.

First visit to Norwich Aviation Museum Very enjoyable experience. Specifically visited to see the Vulcan Bomber and the RJ85. I was particularly interested in the RJ85 as I had been involved in the production of similar aircraft (BA146) at British Aerospace, Hatfield. I would like to express my thanks to the gentleman who permitted me access the cockpit and fuselage, which really made my day! Thanks to all concerned involved in the running of this excellent museum.Sharon Darragh.

Great local attraction It's volunteer-run, but they do a great job. The indoor displays are heavily focused on WWII flying, which isn't my interest, but I enjoyed some of the stories of individuals, particularly the Czech and Polish men who flew for the RAF. The outdoor aircraft displays are probably what most want to see. Consists of mainly 50s and 60s jet aircraft, some of which make for great pics. I particularly am interested civil aviation and hence very much enjoyed the Avro RJ-85 and the 2.5 Fokker F27s! Nice little shop with books, posters and models to buy. Good for both big and little kids. I easily spent 1.5 hours here.
