The Solent Sky Museum offers aviation fans a chance to peruse 18 aircraft of various types, including a Spitfire, Supermarine S6A, Tiger Moth and Folland Gnat F1. A Sandringham Flying Boat also awaits, with the chance to take a tour onto the flight deck, while the Engine Bay boasts an extensive collection of aircraft engines to enjoy. The museum aims to celebrate the Solent area’s contribution to aviation development between 1908 and the late 1960s, opening its doors six days a week and on Mondays during school holidays.

It is a small museum but if you are into flying boats you will enjoy it. There was also a display of the history of the Fire Service which had some interesting exhibits. If you are local,you will enjoy the photos of Southampton after the blitz and a map of Southampton showing where the bombs fell.

An excellent museum .The site is quite small but packed with carefully maintained aircraft. The volunteer staff are well informed enthusiasts.There is also a newly formed Fire Brigade museum on the top floor. This museum is so worth searching out....sign posts are not very clear . A great visit
