Strategic Plan 2015–2020

Annual report

Annual reports are published in the policy and performance section.

The Museum's performance is recorded in the Annual Financial Statements.

Key Performance Indicators have been identified, and reports are included in the Annual Report and Accounts. 

From time to time reports on performance are received from external sources, for example, the Visitor Attraction Quality Assurance Scheme.

Service standards - our Vision

The vision of the Royal Air Force Museum is to ensure that the Royal Air Force’s story endures and enriches future generations. 
The RAF Museum will be a world-leading visitor destination that engages, inspires and connects everyone with the RAF story through exploration of its people and its collections.

Our Purpose

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

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

Three strategic priorities will shape the Museum’s direction and activities in 2015-2020:

  • Interpret the RAF Story
  • Focus the Collection
  • Invest in the RAF Museum.
