Newark Air Museum re-opens


18 May 2021
The museum on the border of Lincolnshire and Nottinghamshire is to re-open from Wednesday, 19 May.

The Newark Air Museum (NAM) is a registered charity and like many similar organisations it has been closed throughout the first part of 2021 due to the Covid-19 lockdown.

In mid-April it undertook a limited re-opening of the external display areas at the 16-acre site and the Museum Shop, both of which have proved quite popular with visitors. The Museum is pleased to announce that it will re-open its main Indoor Display buildings at 10am on Wednesday 19 May, 2021; under the Step 3 Guidelines issued earlier this week.
Initially this will involve visitors making their way around the internal displays at the museum following a one-way system in the Engine Hall, Display Hangar 1 and Display Hangar 2. For the time being the Small Objects Display building will remain off limits and all visits will take place in line with the relevant Covid-Secure Regulations, such as the requirement to wear a face covering inside; provide Track & Trace details for each member of the group; rule of 6; etc. These specific guidelines may be subject to change.

As part of this re-opening the Museum Shop will also be open and socially distanced indoor seating will be available in the Café. Pre-Covid admission rates will apply: Adults £9.50, Over 65s £8.50, Children £5.00 and Family ticket (two adults and 3 children) £26.00.
