Opening times

Bomber Hall Closed 19 to 25 September

The Museum's Bomber Hall will be closed from the 19 of September until the end of play on 25th whilst we upgrade the electrics in this Hall. We would like to apologise for any disappointment that this news may cause. All our other Halls and Hangars will be open during this period, still providing a fantastic day out for everyone to enjoy.

Bomber Hall will open again to the public at 10 am on Monday 26th September.

We would like to thank our patrons for their patience whilst we undertake these important works.
