IWM Duxford is Britain’s best-preserved Second World War airfield, with a fascinating history that dates back to the First World War. Its story reflects the landmark achievements made in aviation history.
Historic buildings sit alongside our striking contemporary exhibition halls; AirSpace and the American Air Museum. Through the rich displays of iconic aircraft and the powerful stories of the men and women involved, we show the impact of aviation on the nature of war and on people’s lives.
With one of the finest collections of tanks, military vehicles and artillery, in our Land Warfare exhibition, we show how technological development impacts on war and conflict.
