About the museum

Within part of an old Victorian school building is a treasure trove of RAF memorabilia and aviation art.

The extensive private collection was the result of one man’s passion and pride at having served in the Royal Air Force. It has become an invaluable record of how the second World War impacted upon a small market town such as the ‘Wings for Victory’ appeal, local prisoner of war camps and the encampment of USA’s Super Sixth Armoured Division prior to the D Day landings.

Today we welcome visitors from around the world, many of whom have relatives that were trained at Moreton or similar bases.

Remembering those who served

Remembering those who served

In 1939 an airfield was rapidly constructed on the eastern edge of the town for the purpose of training air crews to operate the famous Vickers-Armstrongs Wellington mid range bomber, which had a unique and innovative geodetic form of construction. Young service personnel from as far as Canada and New Zealand passed through 21 OTU before being stationed in far off places such as North Africa and Burma.

The museum celebrates the design and engineering advancements at the time and commemorates all those who served in the Royal Air Force by donating our surplus funds to RAF charities.
