The American Air Museum is closed until spring 2016 for an exciting redevelopment. Until September, you can still see our US aircraft in different locations across IWM Duxford.

Our Air and Sea exhibition takes you on a journey from the First World War to the present day.

In our Conservation in Action hangar our team of staff and volunteers are working to safeguard the history of our large museum objects.

See historic aircraft being restored for flight in our Flying Aircraft hangar. Meet the skilled engineers of our flying partners, who make these remarkable aircraft fly again and chat to them about their work.

At the centre of Duxford’s historic site discover how Britain protected its skies during the Second World War and see how Britain’s air defences developed from the First World War through to the Cold War.

Experience the size and scale of the amazing military vehicles in our Land Warfare exhibition. Wander through themed landscapes to discover how fighting on the land has changed from the First World War through to modern conflicts.

Discover the stories of some of the men and women who lived and worked here. Get to know Duxford’s people, try on a replica uniform, fill a pilot’s brain with flying knowledge, and explore the sights, sounds and smells of Duxford.

In AirSpace you can get up-close to some of the most famous aircraft in the world, including the Lancaster, Spitfire, Concorde and Vulcan.

The Operations Room was the nerve centre of Duxford’s Battle of Britain. From here the men and women who worked on the ground at Duxford directed the station’s pilots into combat.
