VISIT THE SHACKLETON MUSEUM AND DISCOVER THE CONNECTION WITH THESE PICTURES BELOW
Fundamentally in conjunction with the Ballykelly Airfield restoration project involving reed beds (managed by the Northern Ireland Water owners of part of Ballykelly airfield the site) the museum would draw visitors to its doors by creating an environment unparalleled anywhere in Ireland taking a trip back to the early days of aviation in Ireland and experianced by visitors of all ages; indeed the Shackleton and Aviation Museum has determined that creating appeal for the youngest generations will be paramount to the museums sucess, and to this end it has two specific plans to attract and retain a frequent visitor and contribuator base.
WORK SHOP LIBRARY AND NATURE EDUCATION FACILITY INVOLVING SHACKLETON AND AVIATION MUSEUM MUSEUM AND NORTHERN IRELAND WATER
The Shackleton and Aviation Museum will re-create a living model aircraft workshop that will paint and construct items that relate to the local world of aviation' Experts and volunteers it is hoped will join in helping to manage the young and old to further their skills in building model aircraft related to our rich history of aviation in Ireland
The Shackleton and Aviation Museum will maintain in segments of its building space an interactive museum. It will display aircraft models manequins in period dress, historical maps, medals documents, aircraft parts, flags of visiting nations, and photographs which wll help visitors understand the difficulties and triumphs experianced in the early days of aviation industry and IIreland's role in the emergence of this world altering industry.
SADLY NOW THE OWNERS OF THE MAIN SITE MJM HAVE NO INTEREST IN PRESERVING ANY OF THE AIRFIELS PAST HISTORY. TWO YEARS OF WASTED TALKS AND A PROMISE TO GRANT US A BUILDING HAVE LED TO NOTHING.
