The Lashenden Air Warfare Museum receives no financial support from the government, lottery grants or the local council. The museum is entirely volunteer run with no paid staff.

Museum funding comes entirely from ticket sales, ‘Friends of LAWM’ memberships, items sold in the Museum shop and fundraising events. We also receive some income from bequests and donations made to the museum by those who believe in what we are trying to do.

The restoration of the museums Fieseler Fi 103R-4 Reichenberg cost the museum £40,000. The erection and fitting out of the museums new display hall will have cost us about £130,000 by the time it is completed. This significant outlay came in addition to normal day-to-day expenditure and severely depleted our reserves. We would therefore welcome any donation you may care to make to ensure our future, no matter how large or small.

You can donate:

Other Financial Support

If you represent a business and would like to support the work of the Lashenden Air Warfare Museum we are always happy to discuss a mutually beneficial outcome. We will happily advertise the support your business or company has donated, financial or otherwise.

An additional benefit is that as we're a charity, your donation will not only be gratefully received by the museum, but our visitors will know of your business and supporting us can be a rewarding way for both large and small companies to show their support and give back to the community.


We hope that all our visitors enjoy long, healthy and happy lives but when the times comes and you feel you would like to support the Museum's work in the future even after you're gone, you might wish to consider a legacy


Despite the museum being very tight for space, some objects are still able to be accepted (following strict guidelines) for display in the museum.
