  • A great tour today with a fantastic guide Ray MBE at the Ulster Aviation Museum. Definitely Northern Ireland's best kept secret. Do yourself a favour and put a note in your diary for next March...

  • My husband, a private pilot, and I try and catch aviation museums in all of our travels. (We are from the USA) It was recommended that we try the Ulster Aviation Society while we were in Ireland...

  • I visited the Ulster Aviation Society yesterday with my wife and two kids. Alan was our tour guide for the morning. Alan and his colleagues are obviously aviation addicts! Their passion for all the aircraft and their knowledge of the associated events were amazing. You can’t help your jaw dropping with the magnificent displays when you walk in. You can walk around the aircraft and climb into most of the aircraft. My son is a massive fav of the Phantom F4. He was delighted to see it on display. Very informative and would visit again.
  • Excellent afternoon. I didn't realise you needed to book so make sure you do that via their web site. However, one of their volunteers kindly agreed to give us a personal tour. My fourteen year old son loved it. Especially being able to sit in an ex Royal Navy Phantom jet!
  • What an amazing and super interesting museum!! We had the privilege of being shown around by the Chairman himself, who is so knowledgeable about the details and stories related to each and every plane. We were totally enthralled and utterly delighted by this gem of a museum. A MUST SEE!!😍❤️
  • Located just outside Lisburn sited next to the site of the former and somewhat historic Maze prison, the Ulster Aviation Society has an incredible and increasing array of spectacular aircraft on display! Having visited on several occasions I can say without a doubt this is a truly fabulous collection of flying machines along with much of the equipment, tools and important accessories pertaining to the day to day operations of these marvels! The history of our local aviation our Aviatiors, those who made huge steps in making flight safer are all encompassed in this fantastic space which is run by an amazing team of volunteers! This is a fantastic opportunity to really enjoy a first class Aviation experience up close and be guided though the experience by those who have worked with and enjoyed letting others become immersed in this fascinating world! I could not recommend the Ulster Aviation Society more highly!
  • A brilliant museum to come visit if you're into aviation, particularly military. This is a charity organisation and rely heavily on donations. You have to pre-book before coming. I emailed and got a reply within the hour, despite the out of office alert. All the planes and helicopters we saw we're all once working. Many are restored and go on displays. Alex our guide was full of knowledge and very passionate, as so we're all the other volunteers. Theres no set time with the tour but I'd say a minimum 90mins. We were here for over 2hrs. We were fascinated with the stories, asked loads of questions and took plenty of photos. As well as the planes the tour includes the development of the ejection seat, pilot uniforms and a room dedicated to Czechoslovakia. The society is regularly approached by TV and Film studios. Pierce Brosnan recently visited and signed a helmet!! See my pictures. Highly recommend this visit. Gate 3, 94-b Halftown Road, LISBURN, BT27 5RF. See my other reviews on places to visit/eatery's etc in Lisburn N.Ireland.
