Morayvia, a tourist attraction in Scotland’s Kinloss, has picked up a prestigious award.
The Press and Journal reported that the attraction has been named Aviation Heritage UK’s museum of the year, noting that it beat off competition from a number of established attractions around the country.
Speaking to the newspaper, chairman of the museum Mark Mair stated: “This is another great achievement and fantastic recognition of all the volunteers we have.”
He added: “There are many members of Aviation Heritage UK ranging from the Imperial War Museum, Rolls Royce and others, many prestigious names with decades of experience, which makes this award even more special.”
Morayvia was established in 2011 to preserve the last remaining Nimrod XV240 at RAF Kinloss. Since then, the aviation exhibits have increased and include a range of iconic aircraft. Among the things you can see if you pay Morayvia a visit are a Sea King XZ592 helicopter and an Antonov AN-2 biplane.
The attraction also boasts a mobile planetarium/wrap-around dome, and part of its purpose when it was established was to bring together disciplines “from aerospace and astronomy to technology and arts-related activities in a single visitor centre”.
Part of the challenge with exhibits on the size and scale of those at Morayvia is showcasing them to best effect, while preserving them and making sure that visitors get the most from the experience.
