Cosford RAF Museum

Visit the RAF Museum Cosford

The Royal Air Force Museum in Cosford is home to over 100 aircraft, displayed in their five themed hangars, and the National Cold War Museum. Here you can marvel at the world’s oldest Spitfire plane and admire rare Japanese and German fighters. Journey through a hangar dedicated to warplanes and continue on to hangars filled with test flight models and Royal Air Force history.
 
Stop by the National Cold War Exhibition and witness the aircraft, missiles, tanks and subs used during the Cold War. Take the time to see up close the only V-Bombers on display, the Vulcan, Valiant and Victor while you learn a little more about Britain’s wartime efforts.
 

Become the pilot in 4D Simulators

There are four rides in the 4D hangar that allow you to experience hands-on flying in a simulator. For those that enjoy tactics, the Airfighter ride puts you on a mission to chase down an advanced flying robot with a team of recruits. Try to save Paris while flying an old war hero mustang in the Paris Air Show ride, or fly to the moon by joining the Apollo 11 mission. If you have quick reflexes, try the Ravine Race, which takes you through canyons at high speeds. There is something for everyone in the 4D simulation hangar so don’t miss it.
 

Fun ‘n’ Flight

Taking the whole family? Drop by the Fun ‘n’ Flight interactive gallery. Here you can learn to fly with a bunch of exciting experiments. Guide a Hercules to a drop zone or do a trial flight to test your skills. The gallery is hands on and both kids and adults love it.
 

Getting there

There is parking at the RAF Museum, however, if you are without a car, take the train from Telford to Cosford. The receptionists at Park Inn by Radisson Telford will be happy to help you with logistics. You will need to pay for parking but access to the RAF Museum is free. Remember to grab a guidebook on the way in to get the most out of your time at the museum.
