Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Service Assessed

The Spitfire and Hurricane Museum is a unique site, displaying the two iconic war planes, but also holding a host of objects and artefacts telling the story of life in and around Ramsgate during WWII.

An absolute must-visit, photography is welcome too, and best of all, it’s free to visit!

In addition to the collection, the Museum has a small shop and café which serves teas, coffees and quality hot food.

Visitors are welcome to sit on the benches in the Allied Crew Memorial Garden to relax and reflect, in an evocative atmosphere.

From April 2018, visitors are able to book a flight in the Spitfire Simulator. For more information, find The Manston Spitfire Experience on Facebook. Cost is £30 for 30 minutes.

The Museum offers bespoke education sessions and can accommodate group or coach bookings.
