Included in your ticket price

Your ticket allows you access to IWM Duxford from 5pm, with the Battle of Britain exhibition, American Air Museum and Air and Sea exhibit remaining open during the evening.

IWM Duxford stands apart from other aviation museums because the site is an exhibit itself. It played a central role in some of the most dramatic days in 20th century history - serving as a base for many of the Spitfire and Hurricane pilots during the Second World War.

Inside every hangar and exhibition - and outside them too - there are hundreds of large aircraft, vehicles, tanks and more. Walk around them, inside them, above and below them and discover stories about the people whose lives they have affected.
