Museum Opening Updated Information
Following a recent meeting with Wattisham Flying Station management team it has been decided that due to the Covid19 situation and the fact that we as a small museum only having limited toilet and hand washing facilities for our visitors and our staff members we could not meet the necessary strict hygiene requirements required to meet the governments Covid 19 regulations.

So it is with much sadness and regret to say that our museum will remain closed for the rest of 2021 but we look forward to opening from the spring of 2022 assuming that
Covid 19 situation is under control.
We would like to thank those of you who have contacted us about visiting this year and hope that we will be able to see you all again next year until then our very best wishes to you all and stay safe.

We look forward to seeing you in 2022


Welcome to Wattisham Heritage Museum

Although we are kindly accommodated by, and receive good will from Wattisham Flying Station we do not receive any funding from either the Station or the MoD, and rely totally on visitor donations to survive, and also to restore, preserve and exhibit precious aircraft, photographs and memorabilia.

We do not charge an entry fee, but we politely suggest a minimum donation of £5 per adult.
We also cater for larger group visits, please contact us to discuss your requirements.

We feel that a visit to Wattisham Heritage Museum is unique, the airfield has a very long and distinguished history, there is a lot to see and experience for all ages, in both the Museum and our Heritage Workshop. Please allow at least an hour and a half for your visit.

We look forward to seeing you


Wattisham Heritage Museum are a group of around 20 like minded people of all ages and from all walks of life. Our aim is to restore, preserve and exhibit the long and distinguished history of Wattisham Flying Station, formerly RAF Wattisham and to inform and educate future generations.
Our small committee comprises civilians, former servicemen.   Although we operate with the full support of Wattisham Flying Station we are autonomous and rely on donations from the general public to survive.

Not only do we warmly welcome visitors to our open Sundays, we are always delighted to organise private visits from clubs, schools and organisations, also Squadron Associations, and of course Wattisham veterans and their families from all over the world.
We are also proud to help provide a link with Wattisham Flying Station and the Suffolk community, the Station is part of our local history having been in existence since 1939.
