"Fabulous hand on half term educational fun…"
Our first visit but we shall definitely go back. Today was day 2 or a 3 day special Olympic themed extra aimed at the children. members of various RAF teams were on hand to talk about their favoured sport and allow the children to have a go. We tried archery, table tennis, badminton, did a sprint cycle test, pretended to ski downhill in a slalom race at about 125km ph and more. The museum itself was excellent too. DS insisted if he'd been here before his history exam last week he would have got a higher score.
Food was good although not a huge choice. If we go again, we'd probably take a packed lunch. Entrance is free, just pay for parkingRead moreLess
"This is a seriously fun day out for everyone. Parents…"
This is a seriously fun day out for everyone. Parents were impressed with the size/number/diversity of aircrafts, and kids just ran around having a fantastic time. The children's section is very good, although the museum is so huge that you could enjoy the day without visiting the kids' section. Good parking, free, and ok Cafe. It also has bbirthday party facilities, but we haven't tried them (yet).Read moreLess
"My 2 year old boy was in heaven in this…"
My 2 year old boy was in heaven in this huge museum. Especially loved the interactive section and plane he could go in and move the tail and wings. I recommend you to take your own picnic and eat in the indoor or putdoor picnic areas. Cafe was quite pricey.Read moreLess

"This was a great day out, especially since it was…"
This was a great day out, especially since it was FREE. All 3 children (5, 7 & 11) enjoyed it. The array of planes was fantastic. 11 yo was especially impressed by the huge bombers. We did pay for one of the simulators which was ok, but the film was a bit old so it was grainy. There's also a hands on area for children, which they found fun. We'll definitely go again when we're in the area.Read moreLess
"My 4 year old son had a fantastic time at…"
My 4 year old son had a fantastic time at the RAF museum. Loads of planes (a few bombs and weapons too, so it's not for the faint-hearted!) and lots of interactive stuff. It's completely free, there's a free car park, and also easy access from the Northern line. We were there for four hours and went home because I was tired - ds would happily have stayed longer.Read moreLess
