See the National Museum of Flight in a different way this summer with our new family activity satchels.

Each satchel contains all the equipment and simple instructions for five playful activities to help children explore the museum from a different perspective. The activities are designed to use outside on our spacious site.

The satchels are free to borrow on a first come, first served basis. Just ask at the desk in the Concorde Hangar, then repack and return the satchel to the Concorde Hangar once you and your family have completed all of the activities.

All equipment is suitable for 36 months+. The activities are designed for all the family but younger children will need help with the instructions.
