Located at East Fortune Airfield, halfway between Haddington and East Linton, the National Museum of Flight has a varied collection of aeroplanes and aviation paraphernalia such as parachutes and radar equipment. The museum takes part in festivals such as Fringe by the Sea, and hosts air shows and robotic technology demonstrations.
Head off on a journey of discovery at this former airfield and explore the history of aviation from the First World War to the present day.
Fill your day with interactive exhibitions, supersonic experiences, historic hangars, an assault course and acres of green grass and fresh air.
