About the RAF Museum

Located in a former airfield in North London, this museum is a collection of hangers charting the history of military aviation.

Everything from models of early planes to actual jets and bombers are on display. A collection of helicopters is also included.

There are usually a couple of temporary exhibitions on throughout the year as well.

IMPORTANT - Although venues are reopening, their hours may differ from normal, and most now need prebooking before you visit.
