The museum aims to preserve and display items that relate to the history of Royal Air Force Halton. It has been named in honour of Lord Trenchard, the father of the Royal Air Force, who also founded the Aircraft Apprentice scheme with which the name of Halton has become synonymous. It was opened by his grandson, the Viscount Trenchard, on 26 June 1999. The museum is open every Tuesday from 1000 to 1600 hours and by arrangement, on request. Please feel free to bring your friends and family.
