The Avro Vulcan was used during the Falklands Conflict of 1982, but did you know that the Falkland Islands are also known for being home to many species of penguins, including the Gentoo penguin?
Find out more about the Vulcan in our fun Vulcan quiz. (Suitable for children aged 3+)
The Falklands conflict required aeroplanes to travel huge distances to complete their missions. Find out how the RAF kept their aircraft fuelled and try our hands-on activity to see if you could take on the challenge of long distance flight.

The Spitfire Fund Story
The RAF Museum’s Children’s Author in Residence, Tom Palmer, has written a time-travelling short story commemorating the 80th anniversary of that significant turning point in British history – the Battle of Britain. A great story to read together.
Join Yusra, Lily and Danny on their amazing adventures in 'The Spitfire Fund'.
Two simple craft activities for younger family members - make your own Side Cap and make your own Spitfire. All you need is paper, scissors, glue and some colour pencils, crayons or water colours. (Younger family members may need some assistance and supervision.)
Can you name all of the jobs on a Lancaster bomber? This amazing plane is a popular attraction at our London site.
Pick up a pencil or a paintbrush. For this year’s Children’s Art Week we had the theme of Literacy and Creative Writing.
