The Newark Air Museum (NAM) is a registered charity, located in eastern Nottinghamshire; close to the border with Lincolnshire; like many similar organisations it has been closed throughout the first part of 2021 due to the Covid-19 lockdown.
In mid-April we undertook a limited re-opening of the external display areas at our 16-acre site and the Museum Shop, both of which have proved quite popular with visitors. We are really pleased to announce that the museum will re-open its main Indoor Display buildings at 10am on Wednesday 19th May, 2021; under the Step 3 Guidelines issued earlier this week
Initially this will involve visitors making their way around the internal displays at the museum following a one-way system in the Engine Hall, Display Hangar 1 and Display Hangar 2. For the time being the Small Objects Display building will remain off limits and all visits will take place in line with the relevant Covid-Secure Regulations, such as the requirement to wear a face covering inside; provide Track & Trace details for each member of the group; rule of 6; etc. These specific guidelines may be subject to change.
As part of this re-opening the Museum Shop will also be open and socially distanced indoor seating will be available in the Café. Pre-Covid admission rates will apply: Adults £9.50, Over 65s £8.50, Children £5.00 and Family ticket [2 adults & 3 children] £26.00.

Please be aware ALL of these proposals are subject to change by government legislation at any time. We will post regular updates on our website and also on our Social Media feeds.
As a volunteer managed registered charity the museum relies on public admission fees, shop sales etc. to fund its operation and it has become ever reliant on the generosity of our visitors, volunteers and staff in these unprecedented and challenging times.
