Aerospace Bristol is a new industrial heritage museum and learning centre being developed at Filton, to the north of Bristol. Due to open in Summer 2017, Aerospace Bristol will tell the story of Bristol's world-class aerospace industry - past, present and future. The show-stopping centrepiece will be Concorde 216. Designed, built and tested in Bristol, she was the last Concorde to be built and the last to fly. The project is being run by the Bristol Aero Collection Trust.
The Aerospace bristol project is taking off!
Aerospace Bristol held a Ground Breaking Ceremony to mark the start of the construction of the new home of Concorde 216, the final Concorde to be built and the last Concorde to fly.
This £19m museum project has already secured significant funding from corporate partners, including a second round pass for a £4.9m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We seek interest from others who share our vision to help bridge the £2.5m shortfall.
Concorde 216, the finest of the British fleet, will be Aerospace Bristol's show-stopping centre-piece. Concorde will be conserved and displayed to celebrate the technical innovation, international collaboration and the people who made it possible. It will inspire today’s and future generations in science, technology, engineering, and maths (STEM).
