Become a Friend of the Museum

The Avro Heritage Museum is a self-funded registered charity run entirely by volunteers. The cost of maintaining and developing the Museum could not be covered by our admission fees alone, which is why we depend upon the generous donations and contributions of the Friends of the Avro Heritage Museum.


Friends of the Museum pay an annual fee and receive the following benefits:


  • Free admission to the Museum

  • A 50% discount on cockpit tours

  • A 10% discount on all shop purchases

  • A periodic newsletter featuring exclusive stories and photographs from our archive

  • Advance notice of forthcoming events

  • Priority booking for ticketed events

If you would like to become a Friend of the Museum, please download the Application Form. Please return completed forms by post, marked for the attention of the Membership Secretary. Alternatively, completed forms can be handed in to reception during public opening hours.
