Research Enquiries

London's Reading RoomThe RAF Museum is temporarily unable to process general enquiry requests. This is to enable us to focus staff resources on delivery of the Museum’s RAF Centenary Programme.

Members of the public are invited to re-submit their enquiry from 7 January 2019 when our enquiry service will be resumed.
 
You are welcome to make an appointment to carry out your own research in the Museum’s Reading Room at our London site. Details of opening times can be found here.

Alternatively, you may find it helpful to consult the Museum's Research Leaflets
