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.

  • Great Museum, lots of information and opportunities to see the aircraft up close. Exhibits range from WW1 to cold war period. Cockpit sections avalible for visitors to sit in. The site is run on a volunteer basis, with friendly informed staff. It's free to enter with a choice to make a donation. If this is your passion, they are looking for more volunteers as the museum is continually expanding.
  • What an amazing place, cannot believe this place has free entry where so many other similar themed places charge significant amounts for a vastly inferior experience. Definitely recommend!
