East Fortune Airfield, East Lothian, EH39 5LF
National Museum of Flight
Situated at the former airfield of East Fortune, the 5* National Museum of Flight is a fantastic spot to spend an afternoon learning all about the history of aviation. Step inside the hangars and discover an array of interactive exhibitions, supersonic experiences and real life aircrafts for you to explore, including the famous G-BOAA Concorde that took to Scottish skies for the first time 40 years ago. With an impressive collection of military aircraft to boot, you’ll also learn everything you need to know about the changing technology of aerial warfare, from WW1 to present day.
With so much to see and do, you’ll be able to jump aboard the Airfield Explorer, a nifty wee land train that will scoot about the site, dropping you off wherever you please! If you’ve got wee ones, feel free to make the most of the enormous space and tire out little legs, or why not take a trip to the onsite play area. There’s also the fantastic Aviator Café as well as picnic areas if you fancy stopping for a bite to eat.
Family day out
With today’s deal, you’ll be able to snap up a child, adult or family ticket for up to two adults and two children. With availability seven days a week throughout the summer holidays, it’s the perfect opportunity to round up the squad and enjoy a fun-filled day at this 5* family attraction!
“Knowledgeable staff, excellent exhibitions and great food in the café made for a wonderful day out. We thought it would be a quick look at some aeroplanes but with the information and interactive displays, we were there for five hours! Amazing work and thought put into this museum.”
“Our first visit. We were there for five and a half hours and it felt much less! Lots to see, experience and take in. Great interactive elements equally for the young and for us older people. A fun aviation learning environment – great to see adults having a go and laughing – good for kids also! Thanks for a memorable day which will stay with me.”
“This is probably one of the best days we have had in a long time. We had planned a couple of hours but in the end we spent over five hours going around all of the exhibits.”
