Day trip to - Solent Sky Museum

Hello there,

At the beginning of the year, I did a '16 in 16' post. One of my goals for the year was to visit more local museums. It's sometimes easier to plan a whole day out and go somewhere a bit further afield, but we forget the gems on our own doorstep.

One such gem was the Solent Sky Museum in Southampton. I last visited this when it was known as the Southampton Hall of Aviation (which the gentleman on the front desk kindly told me was over 30 years ago! Oops). So a visit was well overdue - esp as it was only 15 mins from home. Groupon had a two for one offer so the timing was spot on (Not sponsored by Groupon, I just love hunting on there for good deals!). We picked a rainy day at the end of the school holidays - a great indoor activity for days like this.



Now I know this isn't everyone's idea of the perfect day out, so I won't go into technical details about the exhibits - but if you're in the area with children and anyone young at heart who loves aviation - this is definitely worth a visit - you can even climb into some of the cockpits!













I really love museums like this, enthusiastic staff who are ready to answer questions and plenty of things to look at and even climb on (with supervision!). Guess I'm just a big kid at heart.

Hope you enjoyed reading this and if you're in the Southampton area, give these guys a visit.

Thanks for reading

Cathy
