Explore the new American Air Museum, now transformed and reopened.

From privates to presidents, we hear directly from those men and women whose lives have shaped or been shaped by their experiences of war, from the First World War to the present day.

Explore dramatic displays of epic original aircraft, innovative interactives and intriguing new personal objects from letters to uniforms – many of which have never been on display before.

Re-live exciting personal stories, from Duke Boswell, who jumped out of a C-47 transport aircraft on D-Day, to Huie Lamb, a fighter pilot who was forced to ditch his P-51 Mustang in the North Sea.

Entry to the American Air Museum is included in general admission to IWM Duxford.
