NASAM’s Annual ’40s-Themed Special Event
The Norfolk & Suffolk Aviation Museum is pleased to be able to host a 1940’s themed Open Day on the 7th May 2023.
Museum staff and Volunteers will be in 1940s period costume – mostly military uniforms as we have so many to choose from – but also civilian clothing too. Mike Kendal and his ’40s dancers will be providing wartime music, dance and entertainment in the main hangar and everyone is encouraged to wear something appropriate to those wartime years!
The Museum site will be fully open as usual from 10am through to 4pm on the day, with all the aircraft, cockpits and equipment displays, the 446th, Air Sea Rescue and ROC buildings all open and Museum Volunteers on hand to explain the thousands of aviation related items that make up the Museum Collection.
The NAAFI cafe will be open for the serious business of tea (or coffee) and cake, and the shop will be offering a wide range of aviation related goodies to help you make the most of your day.
Entrance to the Museum, and parking when you arrive, are all free – but we would really appreciate a donation to help with the never ending maintenance of all the exhibits and to help us keep the Museum growing.
We have aircraft on display that date from before the war through to the Canberras, Lightnings, Hunters and Harriers that have seen service in the RAF in more recent times. Across the whole site we have more than 60 aircraft and cockpit sections on display and can often offer access into many of them for photo opportunities. Museum Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions and point out some of the features of each aircraft.
Well-behaved dogs are welcome, provided they are kept on a lead (but not in the shop please, it gets a bit narrow). We are wheelchair friendly with access to all areas – apart from aircraft cockpits.
We look forward to seeing you there…!
