Two Rushmoor museums in top 10% of visitor attractions worldwide

Rushmoor Borough Council has welcomed news that both Farnborough Air Sciences Trust (FAST) museum and Aldershot Military Museum have been named among the winners of the prestigious Trip Advisor 2020 Travellers' Choice Awards.

Every year, the world's biggest travel rating platform, Trip Advisor, combs through reviews, ratings, and saves from travellers and uses that information to award prestigious Choice Awards to the very best. The two museums, which both finished in the top 10% of visitor attractions, are now part of a very exclusive group.

Richard Gardner Chairman of the FAST Trustees said "We are absolutely delighted to win this award and it is a tribute to all our hard-working volunteers who give up so much time and energy, that our visitors have rated us so highly.

"We really look forward to a time when normality returns and it is safe for us to re-open the museum to the public again."

Paul Sapwell, Chief Executive of Hampshire Cultural Trust, who operate Aldershot Military Museum, added: "This is such fantastic news for all the team - staff and volunteers - at Aldershot Military Museum. To receive such an accolade from our visitors is the best endorsement for the experience that we offer at the museum." 

The Leader of Rushmoor Borough Council, Councillor David Clifford, said: "I am absolutely thrilled by the awards and congratulate the winners. Both museums brilliantly reflect the borough's military and aviation heritage."
