RAF Museum

The purpose of the Royal Air Force Museum is to tell the story of the RAF through its people and collections.

  • For the nation, we help people to understand the impact of the RAF on the world

  • For our visitors, we make our collections and the RAF story relevant and stimulating

  • For our current and former RAF personnel and their families, we preserve, honour and share the stories of their Service

Ahead of the RAF’s Centenary in 2018, the RAF Museum is seeking to raise £23.5m to enable the transformation of our London site and create a programme of new exhibitions that explore the story of the RAF across its first 100 years, whilst looking towards the RAF’s future.

 

Our RAF Centenary Programme will celebrate the RAF’s achievements and inspire a new generation of pioneers, inventors and leaders.

We will tell the stories of ordinary men and women whose spirit and values have upheld the RAF motto: Per ardua ad astra (Through adversity to the stars) both in the theatre of war and also in establishing and maintaining peace.

Throughout its hundred years of history the RAF has been a centre for research and development into world-changing technologies. With your help we will transform the RAF Museum into a comparable centre of research, innovation and excellence.
