South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum

A great day out for families and enthusiasts alike.

The South Yorkshire Aircraft Museum exhibits a collection of aircraft from the first airshow in Britain at Doncaster Racecourse in 1909, to modern fast jets and civil light aircraft.

With aircraft which are unique in preservation, alongside a whole host of familiar favourites, and cockpits and interactive exhibits open all year round there really is something for everyone.

The museum is open Tuesday to Sunday 10am- 5pm during British Summer Time and 10am-4pm through the winter. During school holidays the museum is open 7 days a week and is also open on bank holidays.

Getting to SYAM

The museum is located just a few minutes drive from M18 junction 3.
Follow signs for 'Lakeside' until you pick up the signs for 'Aircraft Museum' with the propellor symbols.

If a reminder can be added to 'Visitors approaching from the North and East of Doncaster will need to follow the diversion to Lakeside South and then pick up the Aircraft Museum signs from there. Alternatively they could park in the car park in front of the cinema and walk through (200 yards) to the Museum.

If approaching from Bawtry Road the museum take the junction for the Dome/Asda and follow the brown signs.

For satnav users we find that DN4 7NW works best. Please don't use the postal address postcode as this will bring you to the housing estate at the rear of the site from which there is no public access. Its best to check a map before you set off if you're unsure.

Public Transport:

The number 55, 57 and 91 buses will take visitors from the town centre interchange to the Dome in, from there it is only a short walk to the museum (see map above).
Doncaster Railway station and Robin Hood airport both offer good links for visitors coming from further afield.


We do have space for aerial visitors, it is however on a PPR basis so please phone up to let us know you are coming.
