Solway Aviation Museum: Within the museum buildings, a fascinating display focusing on local aviation history can be found. Starting with the early days of flight in Cumbria you are lead through to the second world war, finishing with the space program at nearby Spadeadam.

The display of artefacts and memorabilia has a strong local flavour and a wander through the exhibit rooms of the museum rewards the visitor with a fascinating insight into local aviation history. The early days of flight in the county are recounted through photo's and artefacts.

The engine hall has a superb display of expertly restored aircraft engines, illustrating the development of powered flight from simple air cooled engines to the more modern jet engines.

Flight is nothing without guidance and a dedicated display to the art of the navigator and his aids tells the story of the evolution of modern guidance systems.
