The hunt is on for giant sized eggs! (26th March 2013)

This Easter holiday (1-12 April 2013) children can play detective as they take part in the hunt for giant size Easter eggs, hidden amongst the aircraft and exhibits on display at the Royal Air Force Museum Cosford. The trail is sure to keep the younger members of the family entertained throughout their visit, plus there is a small prize for every successful participant to take home as a memento of the day.

All egg hunters will need to search the Museum for hidden eggs, which will have an RAF roundel and a code letter.  As you find each egg, make a note of the code letter on your trail sheet.  After finding all of the hidden eggs, children must decipher the secret word in order to claim their prize.  So, if you have any young children in your family and are up for the egg challenge, pick up your Easter Trail from the Admissions Desk on arrival at the Museum.

In addition to this, there is plenty for the whole family to enjoy at the Museum including our new 4D Experience.  If you have ever wondered what it feels like to fly to the moon or to participate in an intense mid-air combat, wonder no more. Visitors to the RAF Museum will be able to experience all the thrills and exhilaration of powered flight by entering the Museum’s 4D Experience.  The 4D Experience combines cutting-edge 3D computer animation with the added fourth dimension of special environmental effects, including seat movements, water spray, leg ticklers and smoke effects. 

The Museum is a day out that everyone will enjoy whatever the weather; children and adults alike will be fascinated by fun ‘n’ flight.  This free interactive area is packed with hands on excitement; it’s the easy way to answer all those questions about how aircraft stay up in the air.  Whether younger visitors are testing their ability to fly an aircraft or guiding a Hercules to a drop zone, they will be learning, improving their co-ordination and most importantly of all having fun.  Parents and grandparents will be equally as entertained during their visit.  With over 70 aircraft on display including the World’s oldest Spitfire, the mighty Vulcan bomber and the unique TSR2 to name but a few, there is something at the RAF Museum for visitors of all ages to enjoy!

The Museum is open daily from 10am – 6pm.  Entry to the Museum and participation in the Easter Trail is FREE - don’t forget to pick up your free prize after completing the trail!  For more information on the Easter Trail or the Museum, please call 01902 376200 or visit
