There are plenty of opportunities for hands-on fun and learning at the Air Force Museum.

Pretend to be a jet pilot and climb inside the Vampire or Macchi jet cockpits, test out the World War Two bomber’s gun turret, try on an Air Force uniform jacket, buckle up in our scale replica C-130 Hercules, and don’t forget to take your mug shot in the “Captured!” exhibition!
