Visiting Jet Age Museum by Car

Location: Jet Age Museum is at Meteor Business Park, off Cheltenham Road East (the B4063), on the north side of Gloucestershire Airport.

Look for the traffic lights between the large white Safran building and the Triumph Actuation building. Turn off the main road into Meteor Business Park at the lights and the Museum’s blue gates will be on your right (see pics below).

The address is:
Meteor Business Park,
Cheltenham Road East,

There is no pedestrian or vehicle access to the Museum from the Airport.
If using a Satellite Navigation System and postcode, please note that this will take you to the eastern entrance of Meteor Business Park from where you will need to follow either the main road or the internal Business Park road westbound until you arrive at Jet Age Museum at the western end of the Business Park.

What better way to experience the Jet Air Museum than by flying here in your own aircraft?

A grass taxiway, designated ‘R’ accesses the museum’s grass parking area.  Advise ATC that you wish to taxi to the museum and they’ll direct you accordingly.

Please note, while those flying to the Museum can access via the runway, there is no pedestrian or vehicle access to the Museum from the Airport.
