The Royal Air Force Museum London gets travelers in touch with history and puts them up close with more than 100 on-site aircrafts that are ready to be explored. Visitors will learn about World War I on an interactive tour of the brand new First World War in the Air exhibit, and travelers can see a life-sized model of an F-35 Joint Strike Fighter jet—the only one of its kind displayed in the world!
Young aviation enthusiasts can get a taste of air traffic control operations in an interactive display that lets them run the show. The Princess Mary’s RAF Nursing Service gives visitors a different view of war, with a behind the scenes look at those who have cared for the sick and wounded since the early 1900s. Travelers in search of education and entertainment agree, the Royal Air Force Museum London is worth a visit.
