South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum

South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum Map

The South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum, which is also known as AeroVenture, is located at Doncaster in South Yorkshire on the former site of RAF Doncaster.

The museum contains a collection of aircraft from the first airshow in Britain at Doncaster Racecourse in 1909, to modern fast jets and civil light aircraft, as well as cockpits and interactive exhibits.

The Aeroventure site was a civilian airport in the 1930s and the museum was constructed by the RAF in 1938.

The airport was used by the RAF in the Second World War (RAF Doncaster) and later the civilian operators fenced off Aeroventure from the airport to be used as a water board depot. The rest of the airfield was re-developed into what is now the Lakeside development and the water board continued to use their depot until the late 1990's.

After the water board vacated the site then South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum moved in. After much hard work renovating the site the museum opened to the public in 1999 and was called 'Aeroventure'.

The museum is located just a few minutes drive from M18 junction 3. Follow signs for 'Lakeside' until you pick up the signs for 'Aircraft Museum' with the propellor symbols. If approaching from Bawtry Road the museum take the junction for the Dome/Asda and follow the brown signs. The satnav postcode DN4 7NW works best.

Doncaster Railway station and Robin Hood airport both offer good links for visitors coming from further afield.
