RAF Manston History Museum

Following on from yesterdays post here are a few pictures from the RAF Manston History Museum which is actually opposite the Spitfire and Hurricane Memorial Museum which I featured yesterday. The two museums compliment each other ideally and if you get a chance to visit both are well worth exploring.

I really enjoyed this little museum, especially as I didn't realise it was here and so it came as a pleasant surprise. There is a nice range of interesting 'large' exhibits here and a nice little gift shop on the way out. 


  1. What a find, you did good Sir


  2. I'm envious of the mass of interesting war-realted museums you've got close by.
