Tangmere Military Aviation Museum

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum Map

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum is located on the former site of RAF Tangmere, West Sussex.

It is home to an impressive display of historic aircraft and a unique collection of aviation memorabilia stretching from the First World War through to the Cold War. The museum aircraft are housed in two hangars with a small number on display externally.

Tangmere Military Aviation Museum was started by a group of enthusiasts as a way of keeping the memory of RAF Tangmere alive.

In 1981, West Sussex County Council donated a large SECO hut to the group and in June 1982, following much hard endeavour, the embryo Museum opened its doors to visitors. The museum has grown considerably since then to exhibit a vast number of artefacts.

RAF Tangmere was a Royal Air Force station famous for its role in the Battle of Britain. Famous Second World War aces wing commander Douglas Bader, and the then inexperienced Johnnie Johnson were at Tangmere in 1941.
