Royal Air Force Museum Cosford

The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford houses one of the largest aviation collections in the UK.  70 historic aircraft are displayed in three wartime hangars and within the National Cold War Exhibition. 

A major feature of this unique exhibition is Britain's three post-war V-Bombers the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant and a number of these aircraft are suspended in flying attitudes.

The Museum is home to the TSR2 and the world's oldest Spitfire, plus a number of smaller unique exhibitions such as the Lucky Mascots exhibition and the RAF Boy Entrants permanent exhibition and the interactive area of Fun 'n' Flight.

The Visitor Centre is home to the new Refuel Restaurant serving hot and cold meals and snacks.  The Checkpoint Charlie Café serving light snacks and drinks and the well stocked Museum Shop are both located within The National Cold War Exhibition.

Throughout the year there is a wide range of exciting events taking place at the Museum.  For further information on forthcoming events in 2012, please contact the Museum on 01902 376200 or visit their website.

The museum is open daily from 10am - 6pm (last admission 5pm). Entry to the museum is FREE.
