The centrepiece of the museum is the 'Carrier' display, in which visitors are 'flown' inside a Wessex helicopter onto the flight deck of an aircraft carrier. Here they can examine the aircraft arranged on deck and follow a guided tour of the Carrier's 'island' - finishing up at FlyCo where all aircraft operations are controlled. In addition, the 'Leading Edge' gallery contains a Concorde prototype and examples of several post-war research aircraft. Across the road from the Museum, is Cobham Hall and it houses the Museum's extensive reserve collection not currently on display and is open to visitors on a few days each year.
