The Bristol Aero Collection is a museum dedicated to the preservation and display of artefacts of the Bristol Aeroplane Company, and its sister companies. On display are aircraft, engines, missiles, spacecraft, road transport and many more items designed and built in Bristol in the last century.

The aim of the Bristol Aero Collection is to preserve for future generations the history of aeronautical development in the Filton area. Aircraft production began on the Filton site in 1910, when the British and Colonial Aeroplane Company started building the Boxkite. The factory went from strength to strength, and was the largest factory in Europe by the start of World War II.

ircraft, engines, spacecraft, missiles, and other more diverse products were produced during the 20th Century, and the site is still very active as the UK headquarters of Airbus. Engine design and production still continues with Rolls Royce on the Patchway site next to the airfield.
