* Helicopter Experience Flights

*All Experience Flights are dependent on the weather and may be cancelled at short notice. If you have booked a Flight we strongly advise you to phone the Museum, on 01934-635227, before starting your journey.

The inclusive cost of admission to The Museum and a Helicopter Experience Flight is 49.00 for adults, with reductions for Senior Citizens and for Children.

The Museum has published a 12-page booklet, compiled by Elfan ap Rees, which is designed for members of the public who are taking their first helicopter flight or are thinking of doing so. Simple drawings explain how helicopters work and why they are much safer than many people think. The booklet will be issued free of charge to passengers who book Museum Experience Flights. It is also being sold at the Museum bookshop and is available by mail order at £1.25. Bulk orders are available to other operators and training schools.

Facilities and Opening Times

The Museum, with FREE on-site car-parking, has over 80 exhibits, all under cover, and a friendly café which serves Morning Coffee, Light Lunches and Afternoon Teas with home made cakes.

Admission charges are 7.50 for adults and 4.50 for children (4-15) with reductions for students, seniors and family groups.

The Museum Shop (HeliWorld) sells the largest range of Helicopter oriented books, magazines, models, model kits, toys and souvenirs in the UK. There is also a a helicopter-themed Outdoor Play area for the under 12s, adjacent to the Picnic Area and the Sue Cullum Toy Helicopter Collection.

On Open Cockpit Days (often, but not always, the second Sunday in each month) our experienced and dedicated volunteers will be in The Museum's main hangar to talk to visitors and answer questions about the stunning collection of Helicopters. (See dates above.)

The Helicopter Museum is 5 minutes from Junction 21 of the M5 motorway and is open Wednesday to Sunday all year, plus all Bank Holidays, 10.00 am - 5.30 pm (10.00 am - 4.30 pm with last entry at 3.30 pm - November to end of March), except that it is closed on Christmas Eve, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day.
Open daily throughout the Easter and Summer School Holidays.
Group discounts and free guided tours are available. Free parking. The Café is open to non-visitors to the Museum.
