The Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum is 50 years old!!
Proud to have been collecting and preserving the aviation heritage of East Anglia for the last half-century, the Museum is pleased to be able to throw open its doors to celebrate and display all that it has achieved since the times before the Panavia Tornado flew for the first time (that was 1974 by the way) and the Falklands War began in the South Atlantic (that was 1982). The Museum has evolved beyond recognition from those early days and is now truly a fitting place to house the machines, the equipment, the designs and the memories of East Anglian aviation.
The day coincides with our annual Royal Observer Corps open day when members of the Royal Observer Corps Association will be hosted at the Museum and our display, housed in its own themed outbuilding, of ROC artefacts will be open to everyone.
Free Entry and Parking-The Museum is currently free to get into, and parking is free too, even for event days.
However, we are very grateful for all donations to the upkeep and expansion of the museum – its what has kept us going for 50 years and, hopefully, for another 50 years to come. In addition to the NAAFI themed café, we have lots of picnic tables throughout the site for you to have lunch. Our on-site shop is also worth a visit. Dogs are welcome in all areas apart from the shop, where is gets a bit narrow. We do, however, request you keep your dogs on a leash at all times.
The whole Museum site is wheelchair friendly with access to all areas apart from aircraft cockpits.
