IWM Duxford is Europe’s largest air museum.
Inside every hangar and exhibition (and outside them too) there are hundreds of huge aircraft, tanks, 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.
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.
Uncover over a century of personal stories from those who served at RAF Duxford and of the many lives impacted by conflict.
Visit the IWM Duxford website for details of what's on.
