Martha Lewington

On 23rd August 2018, Aerospace Bristol was thrilled to welcome the Gascoigne family as the 150,000th visitors to the museum since opening on 17th October 2017.

The museum has enjoyed a fantastic first year so far, achieving incredible visitor feedback across TripAdvisor, Google Reviews and Facebook.

As well as a new outdoor play and seating area recently installed, Aerospace Bristol will continue to develop and add more to the exhibition as the museum grows, with tickets valid for free returns for 12 months from when they are first used.

Next year marks the 50th anniversary of Concorde's first flight and preparations are underway to make 2019 supersonic!

Aerospace Bristol help kids to 'blast off' at The Greenway Centre

Martha Lewington

Aerospace Bristol was pleased to take part in the Invention Sessions at The Greenway Centre to help inspire our next generation of budding pilots, astronauts and engineers.

Children of all ages took part in STEM activities with members of Aerospace Bristol's Learning team including building and launch paper rockets.

Ella Kratz, Learning Officer at Aerospace Bristol, said:

“It was great to see so many children enjoying STEM activities by designing and testing their very own rockets.  We hope it inspires them to pursue careers in science and technology, and we were delighted to be involved and support this local event.”

Kind donation received ahead of Aerospace Bristol Oral History Project

Martha Lewington

Aerospace Bristol is delighted to have received a kind donation of £1,596.70 from Filton Community History Group.

After many years spent capturing local people's memories, the Community Group is disbanding, but leaves a legacy that includes 70 interviews with former Filton aerospace workers and a donation that kick-starts the development of Aerospace Bristol's Oral History Project.

The interviews conducted by the group uncovered never-before-told stories and insights that would otherwise have been lost, offering a unique glimpse into what it was like to live in Filton and work in a variety of aerospace industry roles through the decades.

Snippets from some of these interviews can be heard through listening stations at Aerospace Bristol and are quoted in the museum exhibition, helping Aerospace Bristol visitors to access complex engineering history through the perspectives of the people who made it happen.

Aerospace Bristol would like to say a huge thank you to Jane, Peggy, Jackie and Stan for their donation and generous support over the years.

If you would like to support Aerospace Bristol, please give a kind donation.
