Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum
Centred around the control tower of the wartime RAF Dumfries, the museum houses a fascinating selection of aircraft, aero engines and personal histories built up over the last 40 years.
From our Battle of Britain veteran Spitfire to a supersonic Lightning fighter, via Assault Gliders and helicopters, there are fascinating aircraft on display to learn about. There are many themed displays, including World War Two Home Front where you can sit in an Anderson Shelter, and RAF Dumfries & the Bomber War with a walk-in Halifax bomber diorama. The centre of the collection is the control tower, which houses a huge collection of aero engines, as well as two floors of fascinating personal histories and photographs, culminating in a recreation of the airfield watch office on the top floor.
