The old RAF Dumfries Control Tower is now home to the museum which displays aero engines and artifacts. The museum's civilian & military aircraft are placed outside.
RAF Dumfries was a former Royal Air Force station and the airfield opened on 17 June 1940. It was home to No.18 Maintenance Unit, and also used for training bomb-aimers and navigators.
After the war the airfield was a training station for national service recruits to the Royal Air Force Regiment. In the late 1950s it was placed under care and maintenance until the site was sold to a private company in 1960.
The museum was founded in 1977 by the Dumfries and Galloway Aviation Group.
