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

  • A top quality museum. How they've managed to get so many aircraft into the building is a miracle. Staff are extremely knowledgeable and helpful. We visited as part of the RAF Baton Relay and they couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful. If you're in the area make sure you visit. There's a Police & & Fire. Service museum too.

  • This is one of these places where you go to and think that was great. Not because it is the most technologically advanced museum or that it has the most amazing stuff but because it is quirky, the staff are committed and so knowledgeable and you go that was a great memory and fun. As Australians touring in the UK we were amazed to find the Aussie connection with the Ansett flying boat, never seen one back home but get to see one in Southampton of all places. I kind of enjoyed talking to the staff more than the actual place!

  • We decided to stop for a visit here with our two young boys, we'd heard parking can be a problem but managed to park at the Ocean Village a few minutes away (would be nicer if there were spaces closer though). The staff went out of their way to make it entertaining for the kids, giving them a quiz to do, coming back often to ask how they were getting on and letting them jump into some cockpits to play with the controls. Whilst it's only a small museum, it was very enjoyable with some interesting exhibits and enthusiastic staff.

  • Great little museum and friendly staff. It kept my large boy, also known as husband, very happy for an hour or 2. I have fond memories of here from when it first opened and was not disappointed. I do love the flying boat. Visions of a bygone era and you can go into it and look around. I own up.tl stroking both the spitfire and the beautiful Merlin engine as well. We had a great time here.

  • Very nice museum. Much bigger than I first thought. You may also be able to go to Beachcomber's flight deck and try out two cockpits if you ask the staff.
