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, the museum will tell the story of Bristol's world-class aerospace industry - past, present and future.
Aerospace Bristol's 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.
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).
Designed and built by the Bristol Aeroplane Company in 1944, and one of only 11 complete examples in the world. We have this 'once in a lifetime' opportunity to bring one of the last remaining Bristol Type 170 Freighters home to be put on public display at Aerospace Bristol where it will inspire the next generation of engineers.
This £19m museum project has already secured significant funding from corporate partners, including a second round pass for a £4.7m grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund. We seek interest from others who share our vision to help bridge the £2.5m shortfall.
