Europe’s premier aviation museum, IWM Duxford tells the story of the impact on aviation on the nature of war, on people’s lives and on the history of our region. Set within Britain’s best-preserved Second World War fighter station, seven impressive hangars filled with extraordinary collections and state-of-the-art exhibitions take you on unforgettable journey through times of war and peace.
Lose yourself for a whole day amongst some of the world’s most iconic aircraft including the Spitfire, Lancaster, Concorde and the Blackbird spy plane. Get hands-on with our award-winning interactive exhibitions before exploring under, over and around the amazing aircraft and fascinating objects that bring IWM Duxford to life.
Or simply relax, allow the children to let off steam and soak up the atmosphere of this historic airfield as the vintage aircraft that call IWM Duxford home take to the skies.
