The Royal Air Force Museum Cosford houses one of the largest collections of aviation artefacts in the UK and has one of the world’s biggest collections of missiles. On display are war planes from Britain, Germany, The USA, Japan and Argentina. There are also over 50 aircraft engines to see, along with vehicles that played a role in aviation history.
There is a display of aircraft that saw service during the Cold War when the aircraft of the Royal Air Force held Britain’s nuclear deterrent in the form of the “V” bombers. The aircraft representing this time include the Vulcan, Valiant, Victor and the Gloster Javelin.
For children there is a range of interactive exhibits including the fun 'n' flight Interactive Centre, designed to entertain and inform.
Low level barriers ensure that all visitors can see the exhibits. Wide aisles in the hangars make for easy access for pushchairs and wheelchairs. There are a limited number of manual wheelchairs and motor scooters available for loan at no charge. These are available on a first come first served basis at the admissions desk on arrival in the Visitor Centre.
