Discover a world-class collection of aircraft and hear the fascinating stories of the people who built and flew them at one of Scotland's top attractions.

A range of new safety measures have been put in place along with timed entry to ensure that we can manage numbers and maintain physical distancing.  Please book a timed entry ticket online in advance of your visit.  This includes National Museums Scotland members.

Learn about the history of aviation from the First World War to the present day and immerse yourself in supersonic experiences around our historic hangars and airfield.  Get on board Scotland's Concorde to discover what transatlantic flight was like for its passengers and crew and learn more about its supersonic legacy.

Then round off your day with a visit to our shop and cafe or bring your own picnic to enjoy in our outdoor picnic area.
