Disabled Access Day at the Royal Air Force Museum, London

On Saturday 17th January 2015, the Royal Air Force Museum in London welcomes visitors to Disabled Access Day.  Keen to build on the success of the Autism Access Award (2014) they are continuing to work towards making the Museum friendly, welcoming and accessible to everyone.

All of the halls are visitor friendly, with signage, lifts and disabled toilets. There is a quiet room, with dimmer switch, which is available on request. The museum's website has an accessibility page which gives relevant information.  There is a downloadable pre-visit information sheet, which contains text and images to help you to prepare for a visit, and an autism friendly trail which they hope you will enjoy.

On Disabled Access Day 2015 the museum will be running ‘Try on’ sessions, with Second World War Royal Air Force jackets and hats for you to wear, and a mirror so you can see how you look. This will be a great photo opportunity so don’t forget to bring your cameras! Sessions will be running from 11.00 – 13.00 and then again from 14.00 – 16.00.

"Disabled Access Day is promising to be a really great event and we at the Royal Air Force Museum hope that you have an enjoyable day." - RAF Museum, London
