de Havilland Museum

 

Situated close to the M25 junction 22 The de Havilland Aircraft Museum is located at Salisbury Hall, Shenley, London Colney AL1 2BU.  It is the oldest aircraft museum in the United Kingdom first opening its doors to the public on 15th May 1959.

 

The de Havilland company moved into Salisbury Hall in 1939 to protect the DH Mosquito design team from having their project being cancelled by the then Ministry of Aviation. The de Havilland company finally left Salisbury Hall in 1947.

 

The museum has a large free carpark for visitors and is open to the public Tuesday to Sundays every week and staffed entirely by volunteers.
