Experience the country’s only original Cold War Operations Room, which formed a critical link in teh RAF’s Command and Control System in the Years following WW2.
A visit to the museum will give you a comprehensive insight into how Cold War air defence operations were carried out during those tense and dangerous times as the RAF faced the might of the Societ Air Force and the ever-present threat of nuclear war.
The Museum has managed to retain unique pieces of radar equipment as its purpose through WWII-Cold War was to monitor UK air space. The Museum retells the development of radar through WWII to seeing the actual Air Defence Cold War room (which contains original equipment of the era).
The Museum is an award winning, volunteer run, visitor attraction that offers a fascinating and informative day out for the family. Housed entirely in RAF buildings including the original hardened Grade 2 listed 1942 radar operations building, the Museum provided a unique window into the history of rada covering the period of WWII to the Cold War.
The Museum has 24 exihibition rooms and over 10,000 display items. Knowledgeable ex-RAF volunteers bring history to life giving two daily presentations, telling the real stories of Air Defence at Neatishead.
