The Jet Age Museum is the trading name of the Gloucestershire Aviation Collection, an all-volunteer, charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of Gloucestershire's aviation heritage. The aviation museum is located on the north side of Gloucestershire Airport, between Gloucester and Cheltenham. It houses a number of aircraft, aero engines, cockpits and other related exhibits. It is themed on the early development of Jet aircraft, in particular the role played by the Gloster Aircraft Company and other local firms such as Dowty Rotol and Smiths Industries. The museum is also the custodian of the Russell Adams photographic archive.Make Jet Age Museum a part of your Gloucester vacation plans using our Gloucester trip planner.
Jet Age Museum reviews
Took my nephew for a day trip out and we enjoyed it here, well planned and thought out he really enjoyed himself and me too. more »
Just over an hour to walk through and take in the aircraft and information. Very helpful staff, sandwiches at cafe would have been good, but limited to drinks and sweets. more »
Brilliant. Kids and adults both loved it. Do not miss the Avro Vulcan and Trident cockpit experiences. Amazing volunteers. If you are around Cheltenham, I will certainly recommend a visit.
We've taken our children here a few times now - fantastic place full of really interesting history. Friendly staff and volunteers - no doubt we'll be back again during the summer holidays.
