Aerospace Bristol

Aerospace Bristol opens on 17 October, following a £4.7million National Lottery grant to restore two First World War hangers at Filton Airfield and create a museum dedicated to Bristol’s aerospace heritage.

This is the culmination of a three-year project led by Bristol Aero Collection Trust to tell the story of the industry and its impact on the area including the social history of the people who worked there.

The museum will have transport exhibits of a Bristol 403 chassis and a Bristol lorry on display, maybe a Bristol bus will come later.

From bold pioneers taking to the skies in their magnificent flying machines, to the remarkable men and women who played their part in two world wars, to those who dreamed a seemingly-impossible dream of supersonic travel: then created the iconic Concorde to turn that dream into reality.

A visit to Aerospace Bristol is a chance to travel through the decades, enjoy fun interactives and amazing exhibits - including aeroplanes, helicopters, missiles, satellites, engines and more - and immerse yourself in a story of ordinary people achieving extraordinary things.

The museum is located on the historic Filton Airfield, where every British Concorde made her maiden flight.
