The Wings Museum provides a fascinating insight into life during World War Two.
Each artefact and item of memorabilia tells its own unique story, set alongside the sounds and music of the time.
History appears to come alive in this unique nostalgic experience.
About Wings Aviation Museum
The Wings Museum is a totally voluntary organisation run by friendly dedicated volunteers. The museum is a registered charity and a member of Aviation Heritage UK. We are also affiliated with the Royal Air Forces Association, RAFA.
The Wings Museum is housed in a large "hangar" style building located near to Gatwick Airport and close to Balcombe and Handcross villages in West Sussex. We have been open to the public for over 15 years.
We display an abundance of original memorabilia representing a wealth of "display themes" including: The Home Front, RAF Fighter Command, The Blitz, Battle of Britain, Bomb Disposal, Home Guard, Air raid shelters, Aircraft Turrets, RAF Bomber Command, US 8th Air Force, Luftwaffe, Russian Front, D-Day and Beyond, and much much more.
Items on display include aero engines, airframes, cockpits, aircraft gun turrets, uniforms, medals, flying equipment, and hundreds of personal stories of war, sacrifice and courage.
