Aviation Museums

The map of Aviation Museums is a shows locations giving the history of aviation, including military aircraft used during first and second World Wars.  Wellington Aviation Museum in the UK is a tribute to all the airmen and women who flew planes in the first world war.  So many died during the first-ever night-time raid. It is a must if you are an aircraft enthusiast or wish to embark on a journey through military history. Wellington Aviation Museum is a museum in Moreton-in-Marsh. The museum features exhibits related to Weapons and War, and Aviation. It has become an invaluable record of how the Second World War impacted a small market town, such as the 'Wings for Victory' appeal, local prisoner of war camps, and the encampment of the USA's Super Sixth Armoured Division before the D Day landings.

Today, Wellington Aviation Museum welcomes visitors from around the world, many of whom have relatives trained at Moreton or similar bases.  The extensive private collection resulted from one man's passion and pride from serving in the Royal Air Force.
