Around the aircraft hall, and on the second floor, there are many diagrams and working displays depicting the role of the R.A.F. during the two World Wars and also during peacetime.
On the second floor there are further displays concerning different periods in the history of the R.A.F., and also an Art Gallery, in which there are paintings and sculptures depicting people and places concerned with the R.A.F.
Also there is a George Cross and Victoria Cross gallery on the second floor. In this gallery all the members of the R.A.F. who received George or Victoria Crosses for exceptional bravery are commemorated pictorially.
Everything to do with the R.A.F. is depicted in the museum; aeroplanes, bombs and weapons, uniforms, equipment and illustrations of how life was, and is, in the R.A.F.
Despite this, the museum's greatest attraction must undoubtedly be its superb collection of aircraft.
There are over thirty aircraft in the main hall; arranged in chronological order, and the museum is well worth a visit just to see the aircraft.
Admission is free, and the museum is open during the following hours:-
MONDAY TO SATURDAY 1Oam - 6pm
SUNDAY 2pm - 6pm
