Jet Age Museum set to open its doors again

The Jet Age Museum, located at Gloucestershire Airport, re-opening on Saturday (May 22)

The museum celebrates Gloucestershire's aviation heritage and, in particular, the development of jet-powered flight.

The museum will be open this Saturday and Sunday between 1pm and 4pm and then every Saturday and Sunday afternoon thereafter.

The exhibition hall, shop and café will be open (café opening between 1pm - 3.45pm) but unfortunately all the cockpits will be closed until further guidance allows them to be re-opened.

The museum's volunteers, pictured above, will be waiting to welcome the public back.

The museum will be abiding by current government COVID-19 secure guidance, maintaining social distancing throughout the museum and mandatory wearing of face coverings.

The Jet Age Museum is staffed solely by volunteers, some of whom flew the aircraft on display. It is funded purely from donations.

Fund-raising is currently taking place to fit out the new building which houses the restoration workshop, and soon an education centre, an art gallery, and a lecture theatre.
