Eagles Mere Air Museum

The Eagles Mere Air Museum is devoted to showcasing airplanes, aircraft engines, and related artifacts of the immediate post WW1 period through the late 1930’s. This “Golden Age” of flying and aircraft innovation sparked much social change.

The Museum puts the developments of the period in context through displays of rare craft engines (beginning with the 1st commercially produced engine in 1909), early photos, period toys, and the histories of the pilots that flew the many airplanes exhibited.

If you happen to be visiting on a day when the airplanes are being flown you will likely get to see them hand propped, witness the visceral impact of smoke and noise (nothing like an eight liter V-8 at 1400 RPM), and see them airborne. The 1920’s are still alive in the “Town That Time Forgot”.
