Create an itinerary including Royal Air Force Museum Midlands
Over 70 iconic aircraft are displayed at Royal Air Force Museum Midlands, dedicated to the history of aviation and the Royal Air Force. The museum uses two sites (the other one is in London) to introduce visitors of all ages to internationally important aircraft, housed at this location inside three large hangars. Don’t miss a rare chance to see the world’s oldest Spitfire, part of an extensive Warplanes Collection. The museum also includes the National Cold War Exhibition, opened in 2007 to showcase V bombers and other aircraft used during the Cold War era. The exhibition uses "silo theaters" and a variety of media to depict the key events of those years. The museum also offers special birthday party packages, with private rooms available for rent.

  • Well you cannot go wrong with the price of just paying for the car park. We went with an open mind so not sure what to expect. We were impressed with the amount of planes and the variety that were in....  more

  • It's amazing that it is free to enter. Brilliant place of you're into planes and the history of wars etc. There is so much to see. I liked how it was a one way system so you can't get lost and don't miss anything. Lots of knowledgeable people around with amazing stories about the planes and tanks. Will be going back again when the kids go back to school. Speaking of kids, There is a nice play park there for them to play on while your having a cuppa from the cafe.
  • What a fantastic place! The museum really is a great day out with superb displays and interactive activities. Disabled parking is around 40 metres from the Visitor Centre but being spread over a large area there is a lot of walking. In regards to accessibility by wheelchair or mobility scooter the museum is very well setup. Apart from the obvious difficulties of getting into aircraft if wheelchair bound you are still able to get up close and personal with the displays. The info boards are great and interactive and at an accessible height. The lift up to the viewing area is not for the faint hearted but totally accessible for all and well worth the wait for the lift if it's busy. The staff were very helpful and offered assistance if required. Disabled toilet facilities are spread around the site and were clean and setup well for wheelchair users. All for the cost of parking at the museum, superb.
