Cosford RAF Museum is located in Cosford just north of Birmingham and not far from Telford and Wolverhampton. We took a family afternoon out here following on from our visit to Wolverhampton Adventure Golf We visited during the Covid-19 pandemic and unfortunately it had to close prior to our visit. However, it is due to reopen on the 17th May 2021, complete with a new adventure playground to explore!
First and foremost, it is important to note that it is FREE to visit Cosford RAF museum. There is a small charge for parking of £5 or if you are travelling by coach, it’s free. To book your free tickets in advance, head on over to their website to select your preferred date and time. You can also pre-book your 4D Red Arrows Experience at £5 each. As this West Midlands attraction is free, there is an opportunity to make an online donation prior to your visit.
So, what is at Cosford RAF Museum?

(Please check the Cosford RAF Museum website for the latest Covid-19 restrictions and requirements ahead of your visit.)
We had a lovely few hours here and I fully recommend a visit if any of your family love aircraft. We are all quite fascinated with the birds in the sky, so this was a real treat and my eldest is particularly interested in the War. The aeroplanes outside the hangars were amazing and really unique and it was great to see some interactive activities to do whilst wandering around the hangars too. There is so much information and if you have any questions, there are plenty of volunteers around to speak to, which we did!
We cannot comment on the virtual tours as these were not operating and we chose to not pay for the 4D experience either. I recommend that you keep an eye out on the website if there is particularly any exhibitions you wish to see and there are also plenty of workshops you can also attend.
Overall we had a lovely time here and is perfect to twin up with a visit to Wolverhampton Adventure Golf! And best of all, this attraction is FREE and perfect for a few hours out.
