Attraction Information

Come for a flying visit and stay the day. Why not fuel your imagination and get the entire family working together exploring the Royal Air Force Museum and the fun side of flight?

Visit the Museum's Battle of Britain Hall and get up close a personal to aircraft that flew in the Battle itself. Be amazed by the 5m high statue of Sir Keith Park and take in our free emotive sound and light show 'Our Finest Hour' about 'The Few' which runs daily from 11:00 to 17:00 in the Hall.

Don't forget to visit the Hall's Mezzanine level, which is currently showing the Battle of Britain Art Exhibition or to visit Winston Churchill as he gives his Battle of Britain Speech to the nation from his office in No.10 Downing Street.

Then leave the Hall by taking a trip through an interactive Sunderland Flying Boat - ideal for fascinating the younger members of the family.

Other areas of interest for younger visitors include the Museum's free 3D cinema, on the top floor of our Milestones of Flight Gallery, plus its 'control tower' viewing Gallery onto the aircraft below and the Museum's Interactive Gallery, Aeronauts, where they can learn about the science of flight, through play.

Reviews

The best! 5 out of 5 stars

We absolutely love this museum, especially now it's been renovated. There are some massive new hangars with lots of toy planes to sit in, as well as a small yellow helicopter. They also have great activities, like a magnet board with plane parts, the opportunity to dress up in uniform, and a really cute helicopter on the wall that you can fill up with petrol. Then there are all the computer games! The outdoor playground is also incredible! The restaurants sells some lovely food and affordable prices. There is also lots of outdoor space. It's completely free, but the car park charges £3.50, which is well worth it.
