This month we are introducing a new regular item on the website, Artefact of the Month, to complement our very popular Aircraft of the Month piece. Each month ‘Artefact’ will highlight one of the many fascinating items that the Museum has on display alongside our unique collection of aircraft. The first of these is Wacker, a knitted mascot that flew more operations than many RAF airmen did in WW2, and on one occasion protected its owner from a shrapnel wound by taking the hit itself. Check it out by selecting Artefact of the Month from the Home page.
The Tangmere Museum has 3 computer-controlled Flight Simulators for visitors to ‘fly’.
Talks by Tangmere
The Museum is able to offer speakers to interested groups or societies on a range of subjects connected with the history of operations at RAF Tangmere and other military aviation subjects.

The Museum car park has been enlarged and re-laid and audio guides provided with the assistance of LEADER – the European Agricultural Fund for Redevelopment.
