Solent Sky Museum

Welcome

Welcome to our website.

The Solent Sky Museum.
The "Birthplace" and  "Home" of The Spitfire
 

 

Solent Sky Museum showcases the history of aviation in Southampton and Solent area.

Geographically this area was the most important area in the country, if not the world, for aircraft experimental and development work between 1908 and the late 1960s, the most famous being the Spitfire.

We have 18 aircraft of various types, including the Spitfire and S6b. Our Engine Bay also has a good selection of engines.

We welcome people aboard the Sandringham Flying Boat; and why not take a tour onto the flight deck. Or you can imagine that you are flying the Swift or Harrier Jump Jet while sitting in the cockpit.
