The museum site used to be Duxford Aerodrome when operated by the RAF from WW1, in WW2 it played an important role in the Battle of Britain and was later used by the USAF for daylight bombing raids over Germany. There are many original buildings and hangers here that were in use during the Battle of Britain. There are many static exhibitions of aircraft in the hangers and outside including the American Air Museum. The site is the venue for a number of air shows through the summer months and you can take a flight in a number of vintage aircraft including a Spitfire! these must be pre-booked before your visit. The museum is open from 10am to 6pm other than a short period around Christmas.
