Martlesham Heath Aviation Society – Control Tower Museum

Our aim is to preserve the heritage and aviation history of Martlesham Heath.

Opening Times

Our Society and its associated museum celebrates the rich and varied history of Martlesham Heath as a centre for aircraft testing, development and operations from 1916 through to its closure in 1963.

We look to remember those who lived and gave their lives in the Royal Flying Corps, Royal Air Force and United States Army Air Force whilst stationed at Martlesham.

We also run a programme of monthly talks and can provide guided visits. We’re always looking for new members, volunteers, and supporters.

Please come and visit us or get in contact –


Sunday is Free admission – Donations welcomed.

For opening at other times there is a small charge per head.

Opening Times

Open Sunday afternoons 2pm to 4.30pm from 1st Sunday in April and every Sunday to the end of October.

We have a special Open Day early September each year – 11:00 to 4:00 p.m.

We can open at other times for groups by special arrangement. If you are a school or a voluntary organisation, then you may be interested in arranging a visit to the Martlesham Heath Aviation Society Control Tower Museum on Martlesham Heath.

Unfortunately, there is a cost to opening the museum i.e. heating, lighting etc. and therefore we have had to include a suggested donation, but it is a suggested donation which, can be discussed.
