Dumfries & Galloway Aviation Museum is a small independent museum where we are passionate about the history of aviation and our local area. We have a fantastic collection of aircraft, including our Battle of Britain veteran Loch Doon Spitfire, our supersonic Lightning fighter and our wartime assault glider collection. There are dedicated displays on the Home Front, RAF Dumfries and the Bomber War, and the only dedicated Airborne Forces collection in Scotland.
We are based in the former control tower of the wartime RAF Dumfries which holds a huge collection of memorabilia, as well as one of the finest displays of aero engines in the country. With indoor and outdoor exhibits, plenty of space outside and a small café and gift shop, our museum is an excellent way to while away a few hours with the whole family.
