This Museum attempts to tell the story of RAF Signals. It is hoped visitors and signallers past, present and future can see something of the heritage upon which the Museum specialisation has been built. Whichever category you, the visitor falls into, we hope you will find your visit both interesting and informative.

The Signals Museum is focused on the development of electronic communications by the RAF since World War I. Exhibits include radio and electronic equipment and memorabilia, a typical RAF Y Station from World War II, and the training of Aircraft Apprentices and boy entrants for Signals and Communications trades.
