Solent Sky Museum - Review
Previously known as Southampton hall of Aviation the museum houses extensive collection of jets and fighter planes. Southampton is quite an important place geographically hence the cities transport systems were continuously upgraded. Be it water, road or air, the best of efforts were dedicated towards that. The museum showcases models and replicas of many such jets and even gives you the opportunity to sit in the cockpit of a few. There’s a separate exhibit section of military uniforms, wartime exhibits, engines and various aircrafts that were developed from 1908 to 1960, most famous of them being the ‘Spitfire’.

Solent Sky Museum, Southampton Reviews
As a family we really enjoyed it here. I didn't even know if existed until recently and have lived in the area for a long time. Theres a brilliant sea plane toy can wander around in and lots of history to read about. We got some discounted tickets which made it very reasonable. Good way to spend a rainy afternoon
Lovely little museum. Several hands-on exhibits and lots of planes. Kids can sit in a cockpit and ejector seat. You can go onto the massive passenger plane in the middle of the museum -fascinating. Several areas where you can sit and watch educational videos. There's also a police and fire service museum on the upper floor full of artifacts. You can even lock your kids in the prison cell!
A great exhibition of aircraft and other parts of Southampton and Solent life. Lots to see and do and a lot more hands on than most places nowadays. Highly recommended
Great place with lots of interesting exhibits. Bigger than it looks from the outside and really nice and friendly staff who will make it even more worthwhile with their stories! 👍
Even for a non-obsessive, this is an amazing place. So much to see in a small place with plenty of history shown. Very helpful and knowledgeable custodians.
