I've been there 2 times now. This is quite simply one of the best air museums you will find anywhere in the world. I've visited most of them and Duxford has the best collection of WWII aircraft, many of them are still in flying condition....More

Absolutely fantastic and great value for money. We arrived at 10 am as soon as it opened and stayed the whole day. We could have spent longer. Every exhibit is like its own museum. There's plenty of places to sit down, flat walking, refreshment places...More

Briefly... I belong to the Church of Airplane. I visit every church I can (i.e. airplane museums.) "Duxford" is a pilgrimage site. Some do this once in their lives...others must do it monthly...those who never do are to be pitied. That is all.

If I were you I would allow TWO full days. There is such alot to see and to read, and the area of the museum is massive. Two full days I think would be ideal.
