Midland Air Museums exhibits range from the magnificent Avro Vulcan bomber through more than 30 other historic aircraft, both civil and military, aero engines and other artefacts, to a wide range of memorabilia.
Ideal for air heads of all ages, and even smaller kids who don't think they're interested will become fascinated by these handsome hunks of metal: they're just naturally impressive and intriguing! Those who do know their stuff however will enjoy a wealth of rich detail and full information posted about almost every piece in their extensive collection.
There's also a specific gallery dedicated to jet engines, the Sir Frank Whittle Jet Heritage Centre with huge bits of equipment to coo and goggle at, whiles you can get a look at some more accessible and disconnected specimens in the Armstrong-Siddeley Gallery.
For those visitors unable to access the mezzanine level galleries and aircraft interiors, they do have a 12 minute long film that gives you a tour through the galleries and the interiors of the Vulcan and Argos.
They also offer Children's Birthday Parties at the Museum, these shindigs include a guided tour of the best bits, access to cockpits (which is usually the highlight for most kids!), a birthday tea and goody bags for everyone. Hooray!
