Museum open day

06 May 2024

Join us for a museum open day

What’s included on your Museum open day?

Join us for an open day of the Centre to watch the Lancaster  taxy runs, have Spitfires fly straight over your head, peer into the Lancaster cockpit and get up close to our B25 Mitchell and Mosquito.  You can dip in and out of these activities while you take a look around the museum or eat at our NAAFI or Burger bar.

We will be giving you the opportunity to look into the Lancaster cockpit through the Flight Engineers window from a set of flight steps, this is included in your admission and there are two time slots that you can queue for the opportunity in a first come first served basis.

Two Spitfires from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight will both be making an appearance over the airfield for a flypast in the afternoon (weather dependant).

Tickets are available on the gate on arrival.

Admission rates-

Adults- £12.00
Seniors- £11.00
Child (6-15yrs)- £5.00
Family (2A+2C) -£29.50
