Royal Air Force Museum is a charity registered in England & Wales. Registered charity number 244708.

Visited here on the 26th October, I took my grandson (eight). We both had a Fantastic time. This Museum totally Amazing the only problem was we did not give ourselves enough time! I my opinion I think you could spend a complete day here there is so much to see. I would advise all my Mexican visitors to London to find some hours to do this. Very easily reachable by train, bus or taxi. Roughly 25mins from centre of London. (This place will give you Goosebumps! / Piel de Galina!)
