Fun for the whole family!

A visit to delight all ages

Our mascot Charlie the Crane is on hand to help the whole family enjoy the museum!

With our dressing up corner, flight simulator, interactive games, Jet Provost plane and much more, it’s a fantastic place to spend an hour or two playing and learning together.

? Did you take part in Charlie’s Christmas Song Quiz?  ?

Congratulations to the winners, who bagged a Cranwell Museum notepad, pen and a copy of FJ Beerling’s ‘Spitfire Pilot’.
