Farnborough Air Sciences Museum

About

The FAST Museum presents a selection from the FAST collection in the setting of a historic listed building. The Museum building dates from 1908 and was built as the headquarters of the Royal Balloon School.

Located on a hill overlooking the runway of TAG's Farnborough airfield where aircraft can be seen in the air as well as historic aircraft on display around the Museum building. The full scale replica of the Cody Flyer - British Army Aeroplane No.1A is housed in the Cody Pavilion situated in the Museum grounds.

The Museum is managed by the Trustees of FAST and the day to day running is in the capable hands of the volunteers of the FAST Association. In the Museum you can see photographs and exhibits from the early years of aviation and important pieces of aviation history, like Sir Frank Whittle's earliest jet engines and research models of Concorde.

You can watch demonstrations of a working wind tunnel and there are experts on hand to answer your questions.

Hot and cold drinks as well as cakes, biscuits and ice creams are available in the Coffee Lounge.
