Attraction details
Owner description: Airworld Aviation Museum offers the opportunity to get close up to some historic aircraft. Set on an active airfield, the museum houses iconic machines such as the Hawker Hunter, D.H. Vampire, along with the only T2 BAe Harrier remaining worldwide. Unusually, visitors may enter the cockpits of some of the aircraft and find out what it is like to sit in the narrow confines of a jet fighter aircraft. Please see our website for latest additions to the collection. Part of the museum is devoted to the creation of the RAF Mountain Rescue Service, started here at RAF Llandwrog in 1942, whilst other sections describe the wartime airfields of North Wales. The gift shop sells model kits, remote control helicopters, quadcopters (drones), rockets and souvenirs. Free car parking on site, well behaved dogs welcome. The airport has a cafe run by the Wales Air Ambulance staff.

Really enjoyed a family visit with very friendly arrival. Lots to see and hands on exhibits for young and old. Wide variety of things in a hanger which covered many aspects of aviation. Across the car park you will find a cafe and welsh air ambulance and pleasure flights

First visited here about 5 years and enjoyed it immensely, there were some original and interesting exhibits especially the section on air crashes in North Wales.

Come 2018, I'm staying in the area so decide I'd go back thinking they'd probably changed or updated the exhibits and there'd be something new to see. Sadly though, I was quite surprised to find nothing had changed (except the Hunter which was outside has now gone).

There's a massive opportunity here to update the museum simply by changing some of the exhibits and the way they're presented. The area has such a strong aviation heritage it wouldn't be difficult to modernise things a bit. Indeed it's a shame I live too far away as I'd love to get involved in updating this really good museum.

We visited on a wet Sunday, so were pleased to take cover. Although small, the museum has a lot of planes and exhibits packed in so plenty to occupy plane fans for an hour or two. You can also watch the microlights flying whilst having a cuppa at the cafe afterwards.

This is not really a place I'd chose to visit but my partner loved it, it was very informative. One of the best bits was being able to get into quite a few aircraft. My partner thought it was great for the amount of things they had inside and so much information and value for money
But the gentleman who sold us our tickets was lovely, very friendly and chatty. We had a really long chat before we left and he recommended some other local places to us. Including the cafe across the car park

Spend a couple hours here and you won't be disappointed (especially on a wet day when looking for something to do). Every local air museum has unique displays and relics and this place is no different. Kids will love climbing into the cockpits ( to be honest, we couldn't resist either), there are hands-on displays and lots of learning stations, including mountain rescue A sweet little dog greeted us on our way in. There is a tiny gift shop but no facilities on site. It is, however, a short walk across the car park to the airport terminal with toilets and cafe.
