South Wales Aviation Museum (SWAM) is based at St Athan in the Vale of Glamorgan. The Museum is the vision of Gary Spoors and John Sparks who both share a passion for preserving the rich Aviation History in South Wales. The Museum hopes to inspire the next generation of talented aviators and engineers.

SWAM is a not for profit organisation and a registered charity completely self funded. 100% of the proceeds go to the upkeep and running of the museum and gift shop. There is a dedicated team of volunteers and every single volunteer makes a valuable difference to the Museum.

Visitors are encouraged to interact with the aircraft's and exhibits which enables them to have a fully immersive experience. There is a selection of cockpits open for you to be able to take a closer look at. As well as the vast array of aircraft on display, there are exhibition rooms, a gift shop and an onsite cafe.

SWAM also hold regular organised visits from schools, cub groups, beavers groups and clubs. If you would like to organise a group visit then drop us an email to or give us a call on 01446 789787.
