Spitfire & Hurricane Museum
UPDATE: 24 June 2020
In response to the Government announcement regarding the lifting of restrictions on the 4th July allowing us to re-open, the Trustees have decided that the museum will remain closed until further notice.
We are currently planning to implement a range of measures to ensure that the Museum is a safe environment for our staff, volunteers and visitors. The situation will be kept under continuous review and we will update our supporters regularly.
The Spitfire and Hurricane Museum is a unique site which not only displays the two iconic war planes themselves but also holds host of objects and artefacts which help tell the story of life in and around Ramsgate during WWII. An absolute must visit, photography is welcome and best of all, it’s free to visit too!
Come along and visit and you may well find out one or two surprising stories from the Second World War.
In addition to the collection, the museum boasts a small shop and fantastic café which serves teas, coffees and quality hot food.
The Allied Crew Memorial Garden where all visitors are welcome to sit, relax and reflect in an evocative atmosphere.
The museum offers bespoke education sessions and can accommodate group or coach bookings.
Visitors are able to book a flight in the Spitfire simulator. For more information on this, find The Manston Spitfire Experience on Facebook. Cost is £30 for 30 minutes
