Royal Air Force Museum in London

The Royal Air Force museum is one of the largest and greatest aviation museums in the world, old-fashioned in the most positive sense. There is something here for everyone, from film nerds to anyone interested in history, science or engineering. Next time I go, however, I would give it more time, as you really need a day for this beast.
