Military Museum History Museum
The National Museum of Flight is Scotland's national aviation museum at East Fortune Airfield, just south of the village of East Fortune, in East Lothian. It is one of the museums within National Museums Scotland. The museum is housed in the original wartime buildings of RAF East Fortune which is one of the best preserved wartime airfields in the UK. As a result of this the entire site is a scheduled ancient monument with no permanent structures added by the museum. The hangars, control tower and stores were designated as Category B listed buildings by Historic Scotland, but this designation was removed in 2013 as they were already covered by the stricter scheduling.The museum received 104,240 visitors in 2006.

  • This on the face of it appears to be a disused airfield but a few stray planes here and there and the ominous dark hangers augur more. Upon further inspection there is a smorgasbord of things to see and do for all ages. The jewel in the crown is undoubtedly the unmistakable Concorde aircraft but there is far far more than that. There is a great interactive exhibition for kids. Also if your peckish, an excellent cafe offers much in the way of sustinance. Great day out!! Ample parking.
  • A place to visit with the family great day out with plenty to interest all ages. Concord exhibition is very good. Interaction area both entertains and teaches children. The range of planes to see exceeded my expectations.
  • If you're into planes you won't be disappointed. Military aircraft (including Vulcan Bomber), recreational hanger, and of course Concord is worth the entrance fee alone. Loads of things to keep kids (and adult kids) interested apart from the planes themselves. Highly recommended!
  • Amazing to see the planes including Concorde and learn about the history of the airfield. Loads of space for kids to let off steam (and maybe learn something too). Nice caf├ęs.
  • Great museum which provides transport around the facilities and has many things to look at. Even provides information on the location which gives you a good sense of atmosphere of the place.
