 Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum

In 1972, several enthusiasts got together and decided that something needed to be done about recording the history of avaiation in the Eastern Counties.

The collection has grown from the occupation of the airfield by the 446th Bomb Group USAAF, followed by the Fleet Air Arm and then by the Royal Air Force, to aviation in the East of England.

The museum houses a varied collection of aircraft and artefacts which have been gathered and put on display, most of which has been donated to the museum.

Opening Times:  April to October
                                    Sunday to Thursday  10am -5pm
                           Saturdays from 27th July until 31st August.
