Highlights

  • FREE
  • View additional aircraft, vehicles and engines currently in storage
  • Climb aboard a Bristol Freighter aircraft
  • See the work behind the scenes in our conservation workshop

To get the most out of your Air Force Museum experience, take our special half-hour guided tour to learn more about the Museum’s work ‘behind the scenes’ and discover the aircraft, vehicles and engines in our reserve collection.

Don’t miss the opportunity to climb inside a Bristol Freighter as you learn about this aircraft and more from your knowledgeable and friendly guides.

The tour involves a short walk, under cover, through the Aircraft Hall to the Reserve Collection space in the Conference and Events Hall. With the exception of the Bristol Freighter, the space is fully pram and wheelchair accessible.

We can also offer private, tailored behind the scenes tours for groups of eight or more, not only to our workshops and reserve collection, but also to our archives. Visit our Group Activities page for more information.
