Barbados Concorde Experience, Christ Church Parish

4.3
#1 of 17 in Museums in Barbados
Take to the skies at Barbados Concorde Experience, a hi-tech museum dedicated to the famous speedy aircraft. The main attraction in the museum, a state-of-the-art simulator lets you strap in, prepare the cabin, head down the runway, and take off. If you haven't crashed by then, you even get the chance to land it. Walk around the impressive flying machine displayed in the main hangar, heading through the cabin to the cockpit to learn about all the buttons, levers, bells, and whistles that control this feat of engineering. Super-fast, the Concorde could cross the length of Barbados in under a minute. For travelers who use our custom trip planner, Christ Church Parish holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Barbados Concorde Experience and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

    We managed to get in on the first day of opening after a short shut down The tour guide was knowledgeable and it was great to be able to get onto the plane and sit in the seats and experience what it ...  more »

    This Tour is worth to get to know the aircraft and its features. Although only the value of the entry is more expensive than what is expected, but on the road.

    Imagine my great disappointment when I discovered that this was closed on Sundays and Mondays! Everyone leaves the island on Sunday and is at the airport with plenty of time, and this site is closed! Why??? It is the perfect opportunity to see it, being that the airport is far away from everything else on the island. Big mistake on the part of the Concorde team. Unfortunate for me.

    amazing experience, the light show was really impressive! Staff is very friendly and helpful, believe me it's a great oppotunity to see this legendary plane. But remember they are closed Sunday and Monday.

    This is a very very impressive exhibit. Not only do they have an amazing light show on the Concorde itself, but you're also able to walk through the length of the plane and sit down in the seats! Our guide was very informative and made sure to get answers for any of the questions she didn't know the answers to. There are also fascinating displays around the Concorde talking about the traveling experience for the passengers, technical information, and the history of Barbados aviation. The Concorde was one of the greatest commercial airplanes to fly, and this exhibit is well worth it for everybody, if you have a particular interest in planes or not. Cannot recommend highly enough!

    I don't love planes BUT this is an AMAZING piece of machinery which one really should take the time to see. I was in awe to think that once upon a time passengers on Concorde could travel at twice the speed of sound - my goodness! Surely with technology the economic and maintenance issues could be resolved to have Concorde recommissioned. Can you imagine leaving London at 8am and arriving in Barbados at 12noon?? Way to go - bring back Concorde asap 😎😎.
