The Royal Air Force Museum’s purpose is to tell the story of the RAF through its people and collections.
Established in 1968 as the legacy of the RAF’s 50th anniversary, the award-winning RAF Museum is a National Museum with two public sites; London and Cosford in the West Midlands.
The RAF Museum is a place of storytelling and learning.
Our collections tell the stories of serving personnel, veterans, cadets and reserves from times of war and keeping the peace, from at home and abroad.
Our world-class collections of historical aircraft, technological innovations, archive documents, personal items and the heritage of our sites inspire the Museum’s Learning Programme and each year over 60,000 schoolchildren attend formal STEM and heritage learning sessions at our two sites.
We make our collections and the RAF story relevant and stimulating, preserving and sharing stories of current and former RAF personnel and their families and helping the nation understand the impact of the RAF in the world.
Our vision is to ensure that the Royal Air Force’s story endures to inspire future generations.
