Expert review of Yorkshire Air Museum & Allied Forces Memorial
Housed at the former RAF Bomber Command Station east of the city, this authentic museum includes a comprehensive display of historic international aircraft ranging from pre-war bi-planes to recently retired military jets. British, Canadian and French visitors will find a particular resonance here amongst the original control tower, huts and hangers where a collection of personal and professional artefacts are on show. Spaces to watch aircraft restoration take place; open cockpits for people to clamber in and out of and a comprehensive collection of military vehicles are here too; as are exhibitions dedicated to flying and military pioneers and the terrifying flying environments of air gunners. Both a cafe and gift shop are on site.
Adults £7.00, concessions £5.00, children (5-15) £4.00, (under 5's) free, family tickets £18.00.
Accepts Yorkshire Pass (See the Sights and attractions section on my York insider tips page for more details).
