The Library

The Peter Wright Memorial Library houses more than 4,000 books and periodicals on all aspects of military aviation, including fine collections of aviators’ biographies, squadron histories, technical manuals, and wartime Air Ministry and Ministry of Information publications.

All our holdings are now on a searchable electronic catalogue. The Library is open to the Friends of the Museum on Wednesdays when our librarian is in attendance to provide assistance, and at other times by special arrangement with the curatorial staff. Friends may borrow books for a period of three weeks.

The Library is not open to casual visitors, but non-members of the Museum may apply to the Curator in advance of a visit to consult items of particular interest.


The museum is open every day between February 1st and November 30th.

March to October:
10.00am to 5.00pm
February and November:
10.00am to 4.30pm

(last admissions are one hour before closing each day)
