North East Land, Sea & Air Museums


North East Land, Sea & Air Museums (NELSAM) is located on Old Washington Road, Sunderland, SR5 3HZ. It is composed of:

  • North East Aircraft Museum
  • Military Vehicle Museum

The beginnings of the North East Aircraft Museum can be traced back to 1974, when a group of vintage aircraft enthusiasts began to meet at Sunderland Airport (formerly RAF Usworth).[1

The Military Vehicle Museum opened in 1983 and was formerly located in the Palace of Arts in Exhibition Park in Newcastle, but closed in 2006 after the building required extensive repairs. The Military Vehicle Museum relocated to Sunderland in 2012.
