Barbados Concorde Experience, Christ Church Parish

4.3
#1 of 20 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.

  • Its plainly obvious why people flock to Barbados and when on island you really do not spend much time indoors. However, to miss this indoor exhibit would be a shame. When its cloudy or you've overdone...  more »
  • How amazing to sit in an actual Concorde plane! The visitor centre could be better - a lot of the displays were broken/out of order when we visited. Also, you have to pay for a drink and a snack, whet...  more »

  • I'm only a kid, but I loved this place. I came here yesterday (22/2/18) and I will never forget this experience. The tour guide was very kind and and would often offer to take mine and my dads photo on his phone. She was very skilled remembering the facts about Concorde. I am aspiring to be a pilot so this really boosted my understanding in planes. For the people who say "it was closed that day" or "very disappointing" if you are so concerned about Concorde experience visit the island on a different day to see Concorde. All in all very good experience and recommend it for anyone whether they have an interest or not.
  • 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.
  • 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!
  • 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.
  • 90 USD cab ride there to find out its closed. I will never get off the ship in this country again ... Always disappointing. And we went on a Tuesday when they say they are open.
