The Jet Age Museum is the trading name of the Gloucestershire Aviation Collection, an all-volunteer, charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of Gloucestershire's aviation heritage. The aviation museum is located on the north side of Gloucestershire Airport, between Gloucester and Cheltenham. It houses a number of aircraft, aero engines, cockpits and other related exhibits. It is themed on the early development of jet aircraft, in particular the role played by the Gloster Aircraft Company and other local firms such as Dowty Rotol and Smiths Industries. The museum is also the custodian of the Russell Adams photographic archive.

  • Free entry. Friendly and knowledgeable volunteer staff. Some lovely older jetcplanes to admire. Various cockpits you can climb in to. Interesting cockpit talk and tour of the first airliner to feature automatic landing. Well worth popping in to take a look round.
  • We visited on Armed Forces day and although we are not particularly into aviation we had a good hour or so looking around. The staff were very friendly and happy to share their knowledge with you at any time. Really worth a visit if you are in the area especially as it is completely free!
