Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum

Royal Air Force College Cranwell is probably the most famous landmark in RAF history. Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum portrays the fascinating story of this historic establishment from its early days as a Royal Naval Air Service base to the current day. The experience includes interactive exhibits including a Jet Provost flight simulator, Vampire T11 Cockpit, exhibitions and artefacts. There is also a courtyard area with a Jet Provost aircraft. The museum also runs a programme of fascinating exhibitions exploring the wealth of aviation’s remarkable heritage as well events suitable for all ages.

With its refreshment/reading area and impressive retail space, Cranwell Aviation Heritage Museum is the ideal place to stop for an hour or two.

We also provide a memory box for use in care homes and groups which can be obtained for a small charge - please click here for information and booking form.
