If you’re searching for something different why not take off to Colindale and navigate your way through the history of aviation from the earliest balloon flight to the latest Eurofighter? This world-class collection of over 100 aircraft, aviation and wartime memorabilia offers a fun day out for all the family. Don’t forget to visit our awe inspiring sound and light show that takes you back in time to the Battle of Britain. Better yet admission to the museum is free of charge. The Museum is open daily from 10am to 6pm. This May the Museum has a range of events that are dedicated to the Dambusters, the men of 617 Squadron. From 13th to 17th we will have on display a mini exhibition about the Dambusters including items not normally seen by the public such as original reconnaissance photography and part of the Mohne Dam. On 17th at 3:30pm we will have having, subject to weather conditions, a Lancaster Flypast over the Museum by the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and we will be opening the Museum til late on 17th for Dambusters Night an evening of activities that explores all things Dambusters.
