“Go back to when money and power bought you a seat on this plane”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

There was a time when instead of having small private jets, the rich, famous and powerful travelled together on a masterpiece of design and engineering called Concorde. No longer can you travel to exotic locations close to speeds the tardis might travel at, but not to worry because now they have left the plane in Barbados for us to have a sit in it. Look back to what they gave out as complementary gifts, ate off or what uniforms the staff wore. The staff here are really knowledgeable so feel free to ask questions, really friendly they are to. So step back in in time and dream about what it must have been like to get one of these tickets!

“Good to see the old girl”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013

Happy memories.

Yes it is expensive but worth every cent to wander around the exhibition before boarding Concorde. GO and enjoy.

“Yep, there is definitely a Concorde; G-BOAE to be precise.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The tour guides are very friendly and knowledgable and there are some interesting displays dotted around as well as an observation room for the adjacent airport apron. I did find the lighting to be an issue though - some parts were a bit too dark for my liking which made picture taking a bit of a problem. Still worth a visit, especially if you have a few hours before your flight home (it's a five-minute walk from the terminal past the taxi depot).
