Aerospace Bristol – Brand New Attraction

Posted on: November 30th, 2017 by Kathryn Jobson

Aerospace Bristol is now open!!  The museum tells the story of Bristol’s aerospace industry and showcases British innovation, design and engineering.

The museum displays artefacts spanning over 100 years of aviation history and includes a dedicated learning centre for school groups, exhibition galleries, an archive store, a reading room and a 150 seat lecture theatre, as well as picnic areas, a cafe and a shop.

The collections include Bristol built aircraft, including Bristol Scout, Bristol Fighter and a Blenheim IV, however, the centrepiece of the museum is the last Concorde that was built and flown, Concorde 216.  The average speed of a Concorde was said to be 1,320 mph, with a typical take off speed of 250 mph.

School groups planning a visit to Aerospace Bristol can expect a practical learning experience, which encourages students to develope STEM skills and discover the possibilities of a career in engineering.
