DESCRIPTION

The Helicopter Museum in Weston-super-Mare is the largest dedicated Rotorcraft Collection in the world, with over 80 helicopters on display! Favourites include two of the Queen’s Royal Flight helicopters, the world speed record holder G-Lynx (400 km per hour!), the Vietnam Veteran Huey and the Hind Russian Gun Ship.

You don’t have to be an aviation buff to enjoy the museum and there’s plenty for kids to do. As well as all the helicopters there’s an interactive zone to explore, film theatre and a ‘Play Copter’ outside for kids! Regular open cockpit days give you a chance to climb aboard, have the controls explained to you by an expert and pose for a photo!

Copter Coffee Cafe, Gift Shop, Picnic Area & Free Car Parking On Site.

Opening Times:
We are open Wednesday to Sunday throughout the year from 10am - 5.30pm (4.30pm November - March). Open Bank Holidays, Easter fortnight and every day mid July - end of August.
