Prepare for the big jump

Prepare for the big jump

It’s 1944 and the most important day of the war so far is looming. You and your family are needed as the latest recruits of paratroopers.

As a team use your Jump Bag to spot a Spitfire from just its sound, perfect how to land safely and be assigned your rank.

Learn about the biggest invasion in history as you explore IWM Duxford. This interactive storytelling experience is based on personal stories from those who served on D-Day.

Family Mission: D-Day Edition is a drop-in activity recommended for families with children aged 7+. You’ll need to collect your Jump Bag from admissions to begin. 

This activity directs you around different areas of IWM Duxford. For the best experience we recommend setting aside an hour for this activity.
