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. Throughout February we will be displaying 3 great free exhibitions throughout the month and opening a further two in the latter half of the month. Our latest art exhibition 'Airfix : Making History' is in the Museum's Art Gallery where we focus upon an often overlooked part of the Airfix experience - the fantastic paintings that were used to promote Airfix's Kits. Over 30 examples of artwork from Airfix's early days to the modern day will be on display together with original models from the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s and 90s, in the Museum's Art Gallery - located on the 1st Floor of Conference Reception. ' Pilots of the Caribbean : Volunteers of African Heritage in the Royal Air Force' can be found in the Museum's Sydney Camm Area directly opposite our Lancaster. In this exhibition, we look at the contribution that black service personnel have made to the development of the Royal Air Force, whilst highlight the RAF's success in embracing cultural diversity also lead to the rich cosmopolitan nature of modern Britain. 'Royal Air Force Photographer of The Year' is currently on show in our Milestones of Flight Gallery until Easter. In this exhibition we display behind the scenes imagery of Service Personnel at work, rest and play and show those images that have been chosen by a panel of professional photographers to give added insight into the world of the RAF. Of our 2 new exhibitions, we will be opening 'Aerofilms : Britain from Above' on 22nd of February and unveiling an exhibition about the progress of the Dornier Do17 on 28th. In 'Aerofilms : Britain From Above', which has been curated by English Heritage, we explore the work of Aerofilms Ltd, the company who mapped Great Britain from the air marrying the technology of flight with the discipline of photography, in the process developing 'Brand Britain'. The exhibition covers the period 1919 to 1953 and displays some of the 95,000 images that Englsh Heritage are currently in the process of digitising for public display as well as the equipment used by the company to turn their photographs into usable maps. At our Dornier Do17 exhibition unveiling on 28th, visitors are invited to meet with the team that successfully raised the Dornier Do17 from the Dover Straits, and, should they wish to also clean some of the smaller components retrieved from the aircraft under the supervision of members of the team. The unveiling will commence at 11 am and members of the team will be present to answer and questions from 11am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4pm. Cleaning sessions will operate at the same time. Other events taking place in February include our Knit For Britain From Above craft sessions which will run from 17th to 21st of February when we will be attempting to cover one of our aircraft, de Havilland 9b in knitting. At the same time, from 17th to 23rd of February we will be running Airfix Make and Takes sessions, when for a very affordable £2 per kit you can make your own 1:72 scale Sopwith Camel or Albatros. Make and Takes will run from 11am to 1pm and from 2pm to 4 pm. Both of these activities are suitable for visitors aged 5 and above. « less
