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.

A great museum with some fantastic volunteer staff who are very knowledgeable and friendly.
Great place and awesome and helpful people. Loved the visit. It’s bit small but good experience overall
Great place to visit, excellent exhibits and friendly volunteer staff. Have always been a huge fan of the Vulcan, so really enjoyed visiting the cockpit. No entry fee but donations accepted, also good little cafe and easy to get to.
Kids loved and enjoyed this place, all the staff were very helpful. Worth the visit
Fun and informative. Free entry but a contribution is worth it to see a well laid out and run museum detailing an almost forgotten part of Gloucester's history. The planes and plane part are in beautiful condition with informative labelling and displays. The staff, all volunteers, are genuinely enthusiastic.
Great place to visit with children who like vehicles. Go on a Saturday, even during the winter months and you will see loads of planes and helicopters taking off. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable, wonderful bunch of volunteers!
Great place. Staff and volunteers were very friendly and helpful, Full of experience and knowledge. Nice to go in the cockpit of the Vulcan bomber and the talk.
Fascinating place - although small, there is plenty of interest including sit in models and cockpits. Haven't seen this many Meteors since the 50's! It's free, but they need to expand to accommodate the outside planes, which is why anyone who visits should leave a donation. Pity the Javelin FAW4 was parked off-site and only just visible.. Alright, so I'm an anorak, but my 5 year old grandson loved it - especially the the sponge cake.
