The MET LogoThe Royal Air Force Museum is pleased to announce the appointment of MET Studio as design consultants for the upcoming exhibition to mark the Centenary of the RAF in 2018.

The Royal Air Force will be celebrating its Centenary in 2018. To mark this momentous international event, the Royal Air Force Museum is undertaking an ambitious programme with the support of a grant of £4,494,100 from the Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) to transform our London site into a world-class National Museum that engages, inspires and connects everyone with the RAF story through exploration of its people and collections.

Thanks to National Lottery players, a series of new exhibitions exploring the first hundred years of the RAF and its future will sit at the heart of our re-landscaped site. An expanded, more diverse audience will enjoy a richer engagement with our site, collections and people-focused interpretation.

MET Studio will specifically be working on the exhibition which tells the story of the first hundred years of the RAF. Working with the Museum’s exhibition development team, MET will work with the RAF on the narrative, providing 3D and 2D graphic design services as well as advising on the interactive exhibit development and visitor experiences being created for this exciting new introductory gallery, opening in 2018.

MET Studio has over 30 years’ experience of planning, designing and delivering museums, expos, visitor centres, exhibitions and attractions across 50 countries, combining strategic vision and insight with cutting-edge creativity to bring life to environments and experiences that truly connect with audiences.

“We are very excited to play a key part in the centenary celebrations of the RAF Museum” said MET Studio’s Creative Director, Peter Karn. “There is a great opportunity to tell a wealth of inspiring personal stories from RAF history – from the pilots to the crew to the families involved, as well as showcasing its impressive collection.”

Sarah Dellar, Exhibitions Project Manager, RAF Museum, said: “The Royal Air Force Museum are proud to be working with MET Studio London on the design of an exciting new interactive exhibition telling the story of the RAF and its servicemen and women from the inception in 1918 to the Centenary in 2018.”
