Why not stop by for a visit?

There is a huge array of aircraft and displays at Cosford.  We recommend you allow four hours for a full site visit which will take in the Wartime Hangars and National Cold War Exhibition.  During your visit you are welcomed on arrival in the Visitor Centre and this glass fronted building offers views over the airfield.

In Test Flight experience the research and development collection including an aircraft made from stainless steel.  Here, you will find Fun 'n' Flight the hands-on interactive gallery and the Black Hawk flight simulator.  Beyond Test Flight is the War in the Air collection with classics in aviation history.  Photograph the world's oldest Spitfire and view rare German and Japanese aircraft.

The National Cold War Exhibition tells the story of the Cold War including social and cultural perspectives.  The interactive hotspots and kiosks pick out key aspects of the era including the Space Race and Cuban Missile Crisis.  Here there is time for a drink at the Refuel Citroen Van before browsing in the Souvenir Shop.

Hangar 1 is home to the transport and training collection and many engines and missiles.  There is a temporary exhibition gallery and art gallery with works for sale from the Guild of Aviation Artists.  We hope you enjoy your visit and that you will visit again in the not too distant future.

Hangar 1 Temporary Closure

During recent extreme weather the Museum was subject to localised floods and lightning strikes. Unfortunately this has meant that we are still trying to resolve the technical faults and damage caused. H1 was particularly affected and therefore we are unable to open the hangar whilst the work to rectify the situation continues. We are sorry for any inconvenience caused and please be reassured that we are doing all that we can to rectify the problem.
