The Jet Age Museum is the trading name of the Gloucestershire Aviation Collection, an all-volunteer, charitable organisation dedicated to the preservation of Gloucestershire's aviation heritage. The aviation museum is located on the north side of Gloucestershire Airport, between Gloucester and Cheltenham. It houses a number of aircraft, aero engines, cockpits and other related exhibits. It is themed on the early development of jet aircraft, in particular the role played by the Gloster Aircraft Company and other local firms such as Dowty Rotol and Smiths Industries. The museum is also the custodian of the Russell Adams photographic archive.

  • Small but very impressive museum better than some larger and better funded collections. All the exhibits are associated with aviation in Gloucestershire and especially the Gloster aircraft company...

  • The small jet age museum (free but only open on Saturdays and Sundays) packed a much bigger punch than I had anticipated. Located on the edge of Staverton airfield in the Meteor business park it...

  • Free entry. Friendly and knowledgeable volunteer staff. Some lovely older jetcplanes to admire. Various cockpits you can climb in to. Interesting cockpit talk and tour of the first airliner to feature automatic landing. Well worth popping in to take a look round.
  • Fantastic little museum with friendly and knowledgeable volunteers and lots of interesting exhibits. My sons (six and eight) particularly enjoyed sitting in the fighter jet cockpits and the guided tour of the Trident airliner was excellent. Well worth a visit.
