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

This landmark building contains 18 aircraft, military transport, missiles, memorabilia and interactive kiosks and hotspots of information.

This unique exhibition reflects the social, cultural and political history of the Cold War era circa 1947 - 1989, in a fun and innovative way.

A major feature of this unique exhibition is Britain's three post-war V-Bombers the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant. A Number of these aircraft are suspended in flying attitudes including a Dakota, Canberra, Meteor, Lightening and Javelin. Visitors are able to view them from an elevated viewing gallery.

RAF Museum Cosford is one day that everyone from small children upwards will enjoy whatever the weather. Children and adults alike will be fascinated by fun 'n' flight. Packed with hands on excitement, it's the easy way to answer all those questions about how planes stay up in the air. The advanced flight simulator is also a great way to get an instant flying experience.

The Visitor Centre is home to the 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.

Access around the Museum is easy with wide aisles for pushchairs and wheelchairs. Wheelchairs and electronic scooters are available free on arrival at the admissions desk, on a first come first served basis.
