A fine collection of RAF Regiment armaments is on display here.

As is a unique model of the Mohne Dam, the first dam breached in 617 Squadron’s famous raid in 1943 along with models of the dam busting Lancaster and a moving model of the mechanism (then highly secret) that was used to spin up the bombs before dropping.
