1)Why has the RAF Museum decided to close?
The health and wellbeing of our visitors, volunteers and staff is our highest priority. Following government advice and the advice of Public Health England on the rapid spread of Coronavirus, the RAF Museum has taken the decision to close both its London and Cosford sites until at least 1 May 2020.
2)When will the RAF Museum reopen to the public?
Due to the changing nature of the Coronavirus situation, our reopening date will be subject to ongoing review, in accordance with government advice and the advice of Public Health England.
We will communicate the opening of either or both of our sites via our website and social media channels.
3) Will major RAF Museum events be cancelled?
All events at our London and Cosford sites before 1 May 2020 are now cancelled.
We are working with our various partners and planning for all Museum events after 1 May 2020 to continue as planned, but as restrictions on large public gatherings are a known strategy for controlling the spread of the Coronavirus, it is an area that we will be monitoring closely and will be in close contact with our event partners on.

we will be happy to offer you a full refund or transfer your booking to a date later in the year subject to experience availability.
If you have purchased a ticket for one of our commercial experiences after 1 May 2020 and would prefer not to attend due to current public health concerns we will be happy to offer you a full refund or to transfer your booking to a date later in in the year

Our intent is to still run our free STEM residential summer school at Cosford in late July. This will be kept under review. If you are a teacher and have a current Year 10 student who has shown an aptitude in STEM and would benefit from such a course we would love to hear from you still.
