Or, step inside the Virtual Reality Zone and enjoy a Spitfire 360° virtual reality experience, and get a feel for what it’s like to fly in one of the most iconic cockpits in history through your VR goggles.
The Typhoon Simulator is perfect for thrill-seeking visitors of all ages, experience all the thrills and exhilaration of flying over the beautiful Lake District in a RAF Eurofighter Typhoon.
Whether it’s exploring huge hangars packed full of iconic aircraft, becoming a pilot for the day in the aviation-themed playground, or taking-off on a thrill-seeking flight simulator ride, the Museum offers an amazing day out for the whole family.
Take a seat inside two of our Cold War fighter jets this half term week. We will be opening the Hawker Hunter F Mk.4 and the McDonnell Douglas Phantom FG1 between 11.00am and 4.00pm on Tuesday and Thursday. Find them in the National Cold War Exhibition Hangar.
