History
The Solway Aviation Museum was established in 1961, and is home to a collection of aircraft, aviation artifacts and displays reflecting Britain's position as a world leader in aircraft design and innovation at the dawn of the jet age.

The Museum is run entirely by a team of volunteers from the Solway Aviation Society. The aircraft collection is based on post war British jets that entered service with the Royal Air Force during the 1950's and 60's, and many have a local connection.

The museum also details the fascinating history of the civilian life of Carlisle Airport over many years.
