National Cold War Exhibition

National Cold War Exhibition

The National Cold War Exhibition was opened by HRH Princess Anne on 7th February 2007. The Exhibition is housed in a landmark building and its unique design has resulted in many awards and accolades.

The Exhibition houses 19 aircraft, tanks, vehicles, models and memorabilia. A number of aircraft are suspended in flying attitudes and this is the only place in the UK where you can view Britain’s V-Bombers: the Vulcan, Victor and Valiant.

Royal Air Force Museum

The Royal Air Force Museum is Britain’s only national museum dedicated to aviation. The Museum occupies two public sites at Colindale in North London, and Cosford in Shropshire, West Midlands. The Museums are open daily throughout the year and admission is free of charge so why not visit us soon?
