Overview

Experience a true legend; the only one in the Caribbean - the British Airways G-BOAE Concorde affectionately known as Alpha Echo. Your tour is for an approximate 45 minutes to 1 hour which includes an awe-inspiring presentation titled "Engineered for Speed" and being able to board the aircraft where they watch another presentation onboard of the in-flight experience of Concorde. Your tour guide takes you around the facility and provides you with all of the relative facts and historic features on the Alpha Echo Concorde. If you are at the airport you can take a brief walk across to the taxi stand area and enter through the side gate for easier access to the facility from there. There is no audio or video recording allowed on tour but guests are allowed to take as many photographs as possible. Guests are required to lock their bags in the lockers provided and they are also required to keep the key for their specific locker until they have completed their tour. (please note that one locker should be used per person as there are numerous lockers available for use therefore there is no need for various guests to share)

We loved getting to learn about and tour this Concorde! The exhibits and short film were interesting and informative, and it was fun to be able to board and sit in the seats!

An enclosed facility where you can tour one of the few remaining examples of the Concorde jet since they were retired. Facility also used to host event such as Girl Friend Expo.

You would do best to go to the museum early and THEN go to the nearby airport. But leave enough time.
