The Wings Museum is located near Balcombe in West Sussex and is housed in a 12,000 square feet hangar-like former farm building.

The museum displays mainly World War II-related flying memorabilia and equipment which have been donated or which have been recovered and restored by volunteers.

History
The museum was originally located at Redhill Aerodrome but was moved to its current location in 2011.

In 2013, the museum hosted a fundraiser for the upkeep of the Bomber Command Memorial in nearby Green Park, and in 2015 volunteers restored a Bristol Beaufighter Mk1f which had crashed 75 years earlier.

Car:
The Wings Museum is set in mid-Sussex on the Sussex Weald, just off the A/M23, close to the M25 and within easy reach of London, the South East and the South Coast.

The museum is located very close to High Beeches Gardens and Nursery and also Nymans Gardens is close by, both these venues are sign posted by Brown Tourist Signs, we recommend that visitors use these signs as they will bring you very close to the museum.

The most direct route to the museum is to exit either at Junction 10a or Junction 11 (the Pease Pottage Junction) off the M-23. The museum building is located geographically between the villages of Balcombe and Handcross, approximately 1 mile from the M-23 Motor Way.
