Royal Air Force Museum LondonBritain's National Museum of Aviation, or RAF Museum, comprises several hundred thousand objects ranging in size from aircraft to lapel badges, and spanning more than a century of aviation history. The Historic Hangars, listed buildings that were part of the old Hendon Aerodrome, contain five exhibitions with an impressive collection of over 100 full-sized aircraft, some suspended from the ceiling, as if in flight. Helicopters, water landing aeroplanes, fighters and bombers, past and present, are all on display. The Battle Britain tells the story of the RAF's historic fight against Germany in the 1940's, featuring a de Havilland Tiger Moth II, the world's most famous training aircraft, a Hawker Hurricane and Supermarine Spitfire among the very planes that went to war. The museum also houses an Aeronauts Interactive Centre with over 40 hands on experiments showing how an aeroplane weighing hundreds of tonnes can stay in the sky with real and simulated cockpits to sit in. Kids and plane enthusiasts alike will love it.
