The RAF Museum is committed to engaging with our community –
sharing and involving our community with the story of the RAF and Historic
We have a flexible approach to outreach and are happy to
discuss bespoke activities, object handling opportunities and talks to suit
different interests and needs.
For more information about Outreach Activities, please
contact Rhiannon Watkinson, Heritage Outreach Officer.
Handling Sessions allow people of all ages to see,
touch, smell, hear, and even try on fantastic objects that tell the story of
RAF Hendon. Our vast handling collection brings history to life, and includes Second World War service dress, and Irving Jacket, Helmet and Mae West as worn by
World War Two Pilots, and even a replica German incendiary device. Handling
sessions can be delivered alongside a craft activity and are ideal for family
sessions and community fetes.
To arrange a session please contact Rhiannon Watkinson, Heritage Outreach Officer.
We offer a programme of talks researched and
delivered by members of our volunteer team.
We currently offer 2 outreach talks:
Historic Hendon - The RAF in Hendon and the
aviation history embedded into the area, including comparison photos of areas
then and now.
The story of the established British Jewry’s
involvement with the Royal Flying Corps in the First World War.
To arrange a talk please contact Rhiannon Watkinson, Heritage Outreach Officer.
Work with us to create activities to suit
your group or event, craft activities work well delivered alongside the
opportunity to handle objects from our collection.
Previous craft activities have included:
Badgemaking – be inspired by the badges and
medals of The Royal Air Force to create high-quality badges to display your own
achievements. Paper Aeroplane Challenge – which flies faster
and further a Vulcan, a Typhoon or a Tornado? Create your own paper versions of
real RAF planes and compete against others to win the challenge.
