Things to do at Newark Air Museum review

This is a large museum which is run as a charity. Located on Winthorpe Showground a former World War II training base and opened back in 1973 it is now home to a wide range of over 70 aircraft and cockpits which you can see located around a series of hangars, buildings and also outside. As well as its range of aircraft there is also a series of exhibitions, this includes some interactive and hands-on exhibits which kids will enjoy.

This is a great museum for anyone that loves aircraft with lots to see and look at. It is not for everyone though and although our toddler loved it and enjoyed exploring I don’t think he would be as enthusiastic now he is older.

Sometimes they hold cockpit opening days which means you can have a really good look around some of the planes by climbing in them yourselves. A lot of people make the visit due to it being home to the popular Vulcan aircraft.

Covid 19 – Please check the website or social media of an attraction before visiting. Many places may be open differently and some remain closed. Reviews do not mention all of these changes or possible price changes. Most places still require you to pre-book online in advance.
