Things to see and do

Each aircraft in the collection at Cosford is special in its own way and there are over 70 on display.

Alongside the aircraft are related exhibitions, memorabilia and touch screen kiosks.  See Roland Rat and Percy the Penguin in the Lucky Charms display in the model room adjacent to Test Flight.  Paintings on the First World War are the latest display in the art gallery and are available to purchase.

Some of the more unusual items on display in the hangars include a huge range of instruments in the dental wagon.  There are a number of vehicles to see from tanks to cars, to a folding motorbike from WWII.

In the National Cold War Exhibition look out for the life size Russian dolls and for those with a head for heights, take the lift to the high level viewing gallery and look down at the mighty Belfast Transporter. 

In Hangar 1, you will find the 1:1 scale Airfix Spitfire as featured on the James May Toy Stories series shown on BBC2, complete with a model pilot.
