The Little Aviation Museum Exploring Aviation History through Scale Models

The Little Aviation Museum

The Little Aviation Museum uses scale models to tell stories about aviation using a museum based philosophy.

The Museum’s core are its Public Galleries which feature images and information about hundreds of individual aircraft. Linked to these Galleries are Special Displays about a number of aviation and related topics.

The Museum’s Public Reading Room provides text based information about aviation and scale modelling. This includes current items on modelling and a regular ‘Workbench Note’ about construction of one of the latest exhibits added to the museum.
