October Half Term ideas - The RAF museum London

RAF museum London

If you are looking for family friendly things to do this half term why not head to the RAF museum London.

Why do I think the RAF museum will be a fun place to go?
Well ..... It is full of history!!
History, I know can be a bit dull and when trying to excite the kids with a day trip where they will actually learn something can be a bit of a tricky but when face to face with a Avro Lancaster plane it's hard not to get excited! 

Boys, girls, mums, dads and grandparents are sure to all have a great day out at the RAF museum London and will leave with memories that will last a life time!

I remember my father taking my brother and I on a day trip when we were kids and it was one of the best days out we had. 
My dad was an army man so he was in his element. 

We have taken the boys to a few aircraft museums but have yet to take them to the RAF museum, it's something Jon has on his "must do list" as he is very into WW1 and WW2 so loves being able to see the aircrafts which took part in the battles and wow the boys with his knowledge.
Noah has just really started to get into war planes and is constantly drawing them and googling them on his Hudle. 

Now not only can you look around the hangers and exhibitions you can now find out what it actually feels like to soar amongst the clouds and to participate an intense aerial battle!!! 

You can now experience all the thrills and exhilaration of powered flight by entering the Museum's newest attraction - there  4 Dimensional Theatre.

Ticket Prices:
Single - £4 per person for each film.
Family Ticket - entitling up to 4 people to travel together - £1

This is something I'd very much like to have a go on! 

As well as being family friendly they offer that little bit more by offering a Autism Friendly Trail, I think this is great!!! A few friends of mine have autistic children and they do worry about taking them out to busy places such as museums!  

   "To help those of our visitors who have autism prepare for and get maximum enjoyment from their visit to our London site, we have prepared an autism friendly aircraft trail which may be downloaded free of charge.

The Royal Air Force Museum London offers a fun, enthralling day out for the whole family: and, best of all, admission is free.

With over 100 aircraft on site, nowhere else in London enables you to get close to so many historic and groundbreaking aircraft without paying an entrance.

In addition to this the Museum offers a full calendar of free events and exhibitions that not only bring our world beating collection to life but also educate whilst entertaining visitors. 

They have a special event on -
