History
The Shoreham Aircraft Museum was founded in 1978 by local enthusiasts, whose passion for the Battle of Britain period resulted in the establishment of a permanent display in 1988.

The Museum houses hundreds of aviation relics excavated by the group over many years from crashed British and German aircraft, as well as items which have been kindly donated. In addition, there is a fine collection of flying helmets, uniforms and insignia. This, along with a comprehensive display of Home Front memorabilia, ensures a visit to the museum is both enjoyable and educational.

Many aircraft types are represented in the collection, including recovered engine examples from the Supermarine Spitfire, Hawker Hurricane, Me109, Dornier 17, Fw 190 and Junkers 88.

There is also a tearoom and garden serving cream teas and homemade cakes.
