Is there a place to deposit bags and coats?
Storage capacity is extremely limited and cannot be guaranteed. We recommend that bags and coats are kept to a minimum and either left on the coach or carried around.
Is there a designated lunch area?
Yes. The Museum has a fully licensed Claude's Restaurant which is located outside by Hangar 6. This is the area in which your Refuel Meal Deal and Christmas Menus are served, in accordance with the time requested on your Group Booking Form. Please note, the Museum's Refuel Meal Deal is available for groups of 10 or more.
We also have a cafe at Hangar 1 and the Wessex cafe, which are also fully licensed, but unlike Claude's Restaurant restaurant do not serve hot food, but sandwiches and snacks. The Wessex cafe is located just by the entrance to the Museum's Historic Hangars, just after our Lancaster Bomber.
There is a larger picnic area in the Museum's Aeronauts interactive centre. However, schools on booked programmes have a priority as lunch needs to be timetabled to fit around workshops. On weekends/school holidays the picnic area is used by families and may become filled very quickly. If the weather is nice and you would prefer to eat outside we have an outdoor picnic area.
Does the Museum allow the use of cameras?
Yes, you can use cameras, camcorders etc throughout your visit in any part of the museum. Tripods are also permitted.
