  1. Important Information regarding Our Simulator

    Thank you for expressing an interest in our simulator.

    As you can no doubt imagine, we’re receiving extremely large volume of queries regarding the simulator so we apologise in advance if the information here seems basic.

    I can however confirm that the following information is up to date.

    The Simulator:
    – Booking is required and will be available as of April 1st, 2018 (currently under development).
    – Booking will made online or in rare cases via the phone.
    – Gift Vouchers will be available from the shop in April (the museum does NOT have an online shop at this time).
    – The Cost of the experience is £30 for 30 minutes per person (group rates and under 16’s prices are still being discussed).
    – The minimum age range for the Experience is 12 y.o. Parents can bring younger children (though the museum cannot guarantee a good experience for under 14s)
    – There is no maximum age range as such. But please be aware that a reasonable level of fitness and mobility are required to get in and out of the cockpit.
    – The simulator is an accurate 1/1 scale replica of a spitfire cockpit as such the max internal dimensions are: 800 mm widest (600mm at the shoulders) and 1000 mm highest.
    – The simulator has a weight restriction of 120 kg.

    I hope this is of some help and I would advise checking this page for regular updates.

    Thank you and wishing you a very pleasant day.

Donations are very gratefully received. Not only because they let us know that we enjoy the support and interest of our visitors but also because, like many charities, we can claim Gift Aid support which could add an additional 20% to our donated income.
