Wonderful museum of the Dam Busters 617 Squadron and home of The Red Arrows. Hearing about the courage of the squadron and the daring raid where so many lost their lives was a humbling experience. The reconstruction of Wing Commander Guy Gibson's (played by Richard Todd in The Dam Busters film) office overlooking his dog's grave, is not only authentic but surprisingly eerie. You expect his ghost to walk in at any moment and grab his coat and his dog's lead from the coat stand. You need to book this in advance and take ID with you because this is a working base. Our guide, Tom was an ex engineer at the base and was a font of knowledge. We recommend that you don't miss this. It was a very moving and interesting experience. Thank you for preserving this piece of history.
