International Helicopter Museum

Inspect 80 or so full-size aircraft, including an enormous Super Frelon French helicopter and a Russian gunship, in this remarkable museum.

The International Helicopter Museum is one of the largest helicopter museums in the world and features an excellent collection of military and civilian aircraft. Examine rarely seen copters and perhaps even sign up for a scenic pleasure flight along the Weston-super-Mare coastline.

Spend a morning browsing the exhibits at the museum. Among the items on display here are aircraft built in the United Kingdom, Europe and North America. Look for military helicopters that have operated in combat zones such as Vietnam and Afghanistan, and for one of the Queen’s own transport helicopters.

Other highlights of the collection include an impressive 1981 Russian ground attack and assault helicopter, known as a Mil Mi-24D or Hind, and a Sud Aviation SA321F Super Frelon, a massive French military transport helicopter that can seat more than 35 people. Take an audio tour of the facility to find out more about each particular aircraft on show.

Don’t miss the museum cinema, where you can learn more about flying machines. Kids will love the themed play area and the museum’s interactive zone, which contains hands-on educational displays. Stop at the gift shop on the way out to purchase model helicopter kits, books and museum memorabilia. 

For an exciting vacation treat, book an exhilarating helicopter ride above Weston-super-Mare. The 15-mile (24-kilometer) flight provides spectacular views of Somerset County in South West England. During the excursion, the pilot will explain the controls and teach you how the helicopter works.

The International Helicopter Museum is located about 3 miles (5 kilometers) from Weston-super-Mare. The museum is open from Wednesday to Sunday year-round. Free parking is available. Check the official website for information on upcoming events, including flight simulation conventions and special school holiday events.

The International Helicopter Museum is a unique aircraft education facility, suitable for both avid helicopter enthusiasts and casual visitors.
