Founded in 1978 by a group of local aircraft enthusiasts, the Shoreham Aircraft Museum acquired its permanent exhibition back in 1988. The museum houses and takes care of hundreds of aviation relics, from crashed British and German aircraft to flying helmets, Home Front memorabilia, uniforms and insignia. The museum boasts a tea room serving homemade cakes and refreshments, as well as a tea garden in which visitors can relax after their visit. While the museum uses most of its income to protect and preserve their artefacts, they also contribute to a charitable organisation supporting severely burnt allied airmen of World War II.
