The Future of the RAF Museum and Course Conclusion

Ross Mahoney speaks to Karen Whitting about the future of the RAF Museums.

In this very final step we consider the following questions:

  1. Within the Hendon site, the buildings are not bespoke to the exhibitions as they are designated. With the centenary of the RAF coming, will there be a reconsideration of how the collection is displayed and organised?
  2. We saw at RAF Cosford the work of the conservation centre. Which new exhibits are being prepared?
  3. With respect to public engagement, what challenges do you consider the RAF museums will have to deal with in the future?

We then ended on a goodbye. Which was the last thing we filmed. And we could not get right. So we decided to wish you “GOODBYE” briefly. Thank you so much for staying with us for the six weeks of the course.

This is the final step of the course, so please complete the post course survey (which can be found here to let us know what you thought of the course and how it can be improved for next time.
