Was first class museum but all the good planes have been moved to London it is now very poor cold war museum is worth a visit. Michael Anderson, Telford


We replied: Thanks for your feedback. The Museum has over 75 aircraft and has recently taken delivery of five new aircraft, two of which have recently gone on display and three more will do so shortly. We are pleased to hear you like the National Cold War exhibition and thank you again for your feedback.

Lack Of Entry Into Aircraft

One again I have found taking a colleague most interesting and informative and the only reason I have not given a 5 star review is the lack of not been able to enter any aircraft.
Kind regards

We replied: Thanks for the kind feedback, we are currently exploring options to allow visitors to gain close-up views of more of our cockpits. We will post this on our website and social media as and when it happens thanks.

Festive Fun Afternoon

My wife and I took our granddaughter Emma to the 'Festive Fun Afternoon' event at Cosford this afternoon (30/11/2016) and it was truly excellent event. The students from Wolverhampton University (I think) were patience personified and gave all of the attending children plenty to do. While the Cosford Museum staff could not have been more helpful or friendly.
Thank you for a tremendously enjoyable event.

On a slightly lower note, I was informed that the attending Santa Claus was in fact a teacher from the college.... At age 73, I now find my Christmas dreams and memories to be nothing but a shallow mockery. I may never recover.

Again our sincere thanks for all your work, patience and friendliness.

Great Day

RAF Cosford has been wonderfully updated and the Cold War Hall is really excellent. Good lunch in the restaurant as well. Andrew Stubbings, Liss


Open cockpits evening

At the last open cockpit evening there were just too many visitors for the planes available to view. I have visited the museum numerous times during the day but our first evening visit was a complete and total let down. I have been told since our visit by another regular visitor that a few years ago the number allowed was significantly less and therefore more enjoyable with adequate time to get round all available plane, hence he has stopped attending these evenings. Also before the end time of 9pm the museum were already turning the lights off and ushering visitors out of the hangers to exit.
Don't bother going to one of these evenings it's a waste of time and money let alone the travel to get there, just go in the day and enjoy what's on view with the cockpit.

We replied: Thank you for your feedback which has been passed on to our events team. This is one of our popular events and we introduced additional evenings to help with demand. We were disappointed to hear you found the lights being turned off early and will look into this matter. Thanks again for the feedback.
