The Midland Air Museum as it is today represents many years of dedicated commitment by our volunteers and staff who have helped to establish one of the country’s leading self-funded independent aviation museums.
It provides the opportunity for visitors of all ages to experience the world of aviation in a friendly and informal environment.
In 2008 they acquired the status of a Nationally Accredited Museum which is a recognition of their achievements over many years.
The Midland Air Museum is a unique aeronautical collection. Started in 1967 by a small group of local aircraft enthusiasts as the Midland Aircraft Preservation Society (MAPS), they started to collect books, photographs and aircraft parts. With no permanent home MAPS exhibited at air displays and fetes to raise money for further acquisitions.
