The Royal Airforce Museum was opened in 1972 by Her Majesty the Queen and is located on the site of the old London Aerodrome at Hendon (next to Collindale Tube station). The museum houses over 100 aircrafts from all over the world as well as examples of early aircraft designs, modern day jets and military aircraft.

The museum’s oldest aircraft is a 1910 Blériot, but as well as this they have a collection of Spitfires, Hurricanes, Fokkers, a Sopwith Camel, a huge Sunderland flying boat that visitors can walk right through, a Lancaster bomber that flew over 100 missions in World War II and a full-size replica of the Eurofighter Typhoon which just recently joined the RAF front line.

The museum is open daily between 10.00 - 18.00 and is free to enter.

There are a lot of fun, interactive activities, including the 3D Cinema, the Aeronauts Interactive Gallery with touch and try exhibits, or the special Battle of Britain Sound and Light Show that takes place every hour. Children can sit in a mocked-up cockpit and use the pilot's controls, with the rudder, ailerons and elevators actually moving. Visitors also get the chance to fly a model plane.
