Manx Aviation and Military Museum

     

This independent museum is situated very close to one of Ronaldsway Airport's taxiways and the main runway, allowing a close-up view of aircraft. It tells TWO exciting stories - the aviation heritage of the Isle of Man from the earliest days of flight AND the Isle of Man and its people at war.

Displays include:

The Island’s three military airfields – RAF Jurby, RAF Andreas and Royal Naval Air Station Ronaldsway where thousands of Allied aircrew trained during World War Two.

Relics of some of the many wartime aircraft crashes in and around the Island, with the stories of the people involved.

Allied and captured enemy militaria from the First World War up to the Gulf Wars.

The stories of some of the pioneers of flying who have a Manx connection.

The history of civil flying – air races, pleasure flights and commercial aviation at Hall Caine Airport and Ronaldsway Airport.

The stories of some of the Island’s people in wartime, both at home and abroad, and the many service people who were stationed in the Isle of Man.

Women at War – the uniforms and clothing of women in the forces and at home.

The Home Front – The Isle of Man Home Guard and Air Raid Precautions.

The wide variety of uniforms, weapons, models and memorabilia make this a fascinating visit for everyone.
