WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE MUSEUM?
The atrium gets a new look
UPDATE 23 February 2022
Next time you visit the Museum, you may notice a few changes in the Atrium! The distinctive yellow Tiger Moth has been moved out by our Technical Team in preparation for some scheduled works in this space. Beginning on Thursday 3rd of March, scaffolding will be erected to facilitate the removal of the wooden false ceiling. This is to make way for the future suspension of the Bleriot replica, in the centre of the Atrium.
In the meantime, the Tiger Moth has left the Atrium for the first time in more than 30 years, which involved removing its propeller, engine cowlings and undercarriage so it could fit through the gap beneath the mezzanine level, in front of the Café. It can now be found in the Thérèse Angelo Wing, where it will eventually take the place of the Bleriot replica, alongside the Bristol Freighter.
