Overview

Airworld Aviation Museum offers the opportunity to get close up to some historic aircraft. Set on an active airfield, the museum houses iconic machines such as the Hawker Hunter, D.H. Vampire, along with the only T2 BAe Harrier remaining worldwide. Unusually, visitors may enter the cockpits of some of the aircraft and find out what it is like to sit in the narrow confines of a jet fighter aircraft. Please see our website for latest additions to the collection. Part of the museum is devoted to the creation of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, started here at RAF Llandwrog in 1942, whilst other sections describe the wartime airfields of North Wales. The gift shop sells model kits, remote control helicopters, quadcopters (drones), rockets and souvenirs. Free car parking on site, well behaved dogs welcome. The airport has a cafe run by the Wales Air Ambulance staff.

Museum was only small compared to others I have visited but was quite interesting as it had aircraft types that I had worked on in my time in the RN.

We went on recommendation of our son, and although live half an hour away, we've never been inside, although we knew of it. Run mainly by volunteers, this is an informative and interesting little museum where you are actively encouraged to climb inside the planes...More
