Calling all aeroplane investigators! We need your help to save IWM Duxford’s iconic aircraft.

Get hands on this Summer - search for the mysterious forces and microscopic beasts burrowing into pilot seats, test expert packing techniques to protect fragile objects, learn to use specialised equipment, and more!

Join our team of expert conservators and get into the nuts and bolts of the investigation to help prevent damage to our world famous aircraft.


Aeroplane Investigators is a drop-in activity recommended for families with children aged 7+.

This activity takes place in Conservation In Action. For best experience we recommend setting aside 45 minutes for this activity.
