We're delighted to announce that we will be opening our doors again
The safety of our visitors and volunteers is of paramount importance and with that in mind we will be starting a phased, careful reopening of the museum.
There will initially be restrictions on visitor numbers using a pre-booking system, details of which will be found on our Facebook page.
It is important that you check our Facebook page for the latest information WHEN PLANNING YOUR VISIT.
Our primary source of income from visitors has ceased entirely so to help with the care and maintenance of our museum we are raising funds through a JustGiving page.
Please consider a donation and share our story. All donations will be greatly appreciated and go directly to preserving our museum.

“The work here is hugely important in so many ways. It’s important to Scotland, it’s important to our sense of British history and it is certainly extremely important to the Royal Air Force today, so I know all my Air Force colleagues will join me in saying how indebted we are with that endeavour.”Air Marshal Sir David Walker KCVO, OBE, DL.
