Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum
This is a great day out, where nearly 70 aircraft from the pioneering years to the present – both military and civil – can be viewed, along with aero engines, missiles, military vehicles and equipment, plus 30,000 smaller exhibits arranged in three hangars and seven themed buildings. These include RAF Bomber Command, RAF Coastal Command and Air-Sea Rescue, Royal Observer Corps, 446 Bomb Group USAAF, and aviation in the Eastern Counties during peace and conflict.
There are many small exhibitions on a wide range of subjects such as the work of the WWII RAF Decoy Crews, Home Defence, Boulton & Paul, Berlin Airlift, Airborne Forces, airborne cameras, models, wreckology, uniforms, plus early airborne radio and radar. The many exhibits of personal effects tell interesting stories – such as a christening dress made from a silk parachute, or bricks rescued from a local building that bear the names of WWII U.S. Servicemen; our 1960s modeller’s den and the contents of a 1940s cottage are sure to stir memories of past times.
There is a well-stocked souvenir shop, cafeteria (the “NAAFI”) for light snacks, picnic tables, and a raised boardwalk to the River Waveney for taking a peaceful stroll to the Rover Waveney. Everything is conveniently on one level, and dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads at all times.
