School visits

The Army Flying Museum's Education Programme provides a unique learning opportunity for pupils of all ages to enjoy outside their classroom.

For example, through the Museum pupils can:

  • Learn about life on the Home Front
  • Explore the artefacts in our handling collection
  • Gain a unique insight into aspects of World War II and D Day in particular
  • Use the collection as a focus for exploring and testing both science, and design and technology principles.

The facilities lend themselves to learning in many areas of the curriculum, including:

  • History
  • Science
  • Design and Technology
  • Literacy
  • Art and Design


Whatever your topic, we always welcome visits from teachers. If you think that you may be able to use the Museum to help with work you are engaged with at school, please get in touch with our Education Officer on who will be able to arrange a personalised visit for you to explore the opportunities and possibilities that the Army Flying Museum may have.

The children had a great day and came back full of enthusiasm and knowledge. Thank you to you and your staff for the organisation and smooth running of the day. It fitted really well with our curriculum so I am sure we will come again next year.
