Things to see and do - London

Our transformed free-to-enter Museum in Colindale, North-West London includes:

Three new innovative galleries which explore the first 100 years of the RAF, its roles today and invite visitors to imagine its future contribution and technology.

  • ‘RAF Stories: The First 100 Years’
  • ‘RAF: First to the Future’ 
  • ‘The RAF in an ‘Age of Uncertainty’.

Perfect for picnicking - a new open, grassed landscape reflects the heritage of the site as the London Aerodrome and RAF Hendon.
A new themed outdoor play area for under 11’s.

A new cafe, Hendon Kitchen

A packed programme of family activities and events for all ages. Click here for further details.

Wearing of Facemasks

Please note:

We strongly recommend that all visitors wear a face covering when visiting our galleries, shop and restaurant* unless they were previously exempt from doing so. You will not need to wear one when outside in our green spaces, unless it makes you more comfortable to do so. We would also ask that when in our buildings that our visitors be aware of others around them and where possible maintain a social distance of 1 metre. 

*Except when seated.
