Visit IWM Duxford
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, boats and more. Walk around them, inside them, above and below them and get the chance to see aircraft take off from our historic runway.
Indoor spaces remain closed until 19 May.
Stories from the museum
From archive photography to aircraft, explore around 800,000 items online that tell the story of modern warfare and conflict, collected by the museum since 1917.
Battle of Britain
Duxford was a Sector Station during the Battle of Britain which meant it was responsible for directing squadrons into battle. Discover online collection stories or visit our new Battle of Britain exhibitions on site.
