de Havilland Aircraft Museum

The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is the oldest aviation museum in Britain, having opened to the public in May 1959. The Museum’s enthusiastic and knowledgeable volunteers restore and preserve a fantastic array of de Havilland planes, both military and commercial, on a site in Hertfordshire near where the company had its operations. I didn’t know much about the military side, but had heard of the Comet, the first jet airliner. Of course there was lots of informational displays, but I mostly enjoyed looking at the planes. Many of them were open for you to go inside, which was cool. It’s an excellent museum, and they have a great logo – sadly they did not have any postcards with it though.
