As well as aircraft and artifacts, the museum displays an aviation art collection related to Bomber Command and the BCATP. Visitors to the museum enjoy some 250 pieces of aviation art that are integrated into our displays and all of which relates to our collection and the history that is our mandate. The collection includes 52 original paintings (15 of which were commissioned by the museum), over 55 limited edition prints, over 85 non-limited edition prints, and 57 replica nose art paintings on pieces of Lancaster and Halifax aircraft skin.
If a bomber crew was assigned a particular aircraft, they were sometimes able to choose the name and artwork and this enabled a powerful bond to develop between the men and the machine.
