IWM Duxford

Explore atmospheric exhibitions and discover historic objects. The museum is set within a historic site where you can learn about Duxford’s role in the First World War, Second World War and the Cold War.

The American Air Museum (one of our eight exhibition buildings) is closed until spring 2016 for an exciting redevelopment. Until September, you can get up close to most of the iconic US aircraft from the exhibition in new locations across the museum.


IWM Duxford is the perfect place for a family visit whatever the weather.
