RAF Museum

On our holiday we went to Monkey Forest and Royal Air Force Museum, Cosford. The museum is near an active field, so we saw soldiers and real fighters planes.

We both enjoyed it very much. I didn’t had high expectations, but I found the information very interesting and well presented. We spend around 3 hours without realizing how time passed. The museum is free and the parking is cheap (2.5 pounds for 3 hours).raf_01

The simulator had two pedals too. It was very interesting, but I couldn’t stay too much to play with it because there were children waiting.

In 2007 the £12.5 million National Cold War Exhibition was opened by Her Royal Highness Princess Anne. The architecture and design of the building are very impressive.

A very interesting way to present the events of the conflicts with the domino effect. One of the few special rooms with movies.
