The restored Control Tower of the former WWII airfield at Dumfries, Scotland is the centerpiece of the Museum and is now a listed building. The Museum is run by volunteers and houses a large and ever expanding aircraft collection, aero engines and a very impressive display of artifacts and personal histories relating to aviation, past and present. Both civil and military are represented.There is also a small, but ever expanding collection of memorabilia honoring airborne forces.


After a very success season of talks at the museum during the winter months these have been stopped for the summer. they will recommence in September.

We hope you will be able to join us then
