The displays are complemented by almost 40 mannequins dressed with uniforms or clothing of the period. The 306th are commemorated by a large collection of memorabilia, photographs and appropriate layouts including a G.I bride scene. Other displays feature the Royal Air Force, the wartime home, Home Guard and Women's Land Army. Wartime sights and sounds are recaptured.

We are now a registered learning destination for the Bedfordshire children's University.
