RAF Museum

Britains only National Museum dedicated solely to Aviation, the Royal Air  Force Museum is a wonderful visitor experience for all ages. Not a dry and dusty  collection of remote objects, visitors come face to face with carefully  preserved aircraft and fascinating displays and exhibitions.

Visitors are  encouraged to experiment with interactive exhibits in our fun ˜fight Gallery.  An upper floor allows you to overlook the entire Main Aircraft Hall in all its  glory and specially constructed platforms enable you to get up close to the  aircraft.

The Museum is situated on the site of the original London  Aerodrome, used for the great Hendon Airshows between the two World Wards. Three  mammoth buildings contain over 70 aircraft, artefacts, aviation memorabilia and  photographs covering the history of aviation from early balloon flights to the  latest jet fighters.

You can enjoy a thrilling ride with the Red Arrows  in our flight simulator or experience the sound and light show Our Finest Hour  bringing to life the reality of the Battle of Britain. There is even a chance to  sit in a real cockpit, the jet Provost or walk through the might Sunderland  Flying Boat.

Facilities include an extensive gift shop, licensed family  restaurant, cafe and outdoor picnic area, baby changing room and full disabled  access.

Children under 16 must be  accompanied by a responsible adult at all times.
