Solent Sky Museum showcases the international importance of aviation history in Southampton and Solent area. The Solent region gave birth to the Spitfire, as well as being the home of the Imperial Airways flying boats. Between 1910 and 1960 local aircraft manufacturers produced an incredible variety of flying machines, from experimental rocket fighters to hovercraft, helicopters and spacecraft.
Solent Sky houses over 20 airframes on display from the golden age of aviation, including the Spitfire and the record-breaking Supermarine S6.
Visitors are encouraged to take a guided tour of our giant Sandringham flying boat, and children and adults alike enjoy the thrills of sitting in our jet fighter cockpits.
Help preserve one of Britain's foremost aircraft collections.
