We visited both the British and American museums, both were brilliant with a good display of aircraft. The entrance fee is on the high side when compared with Cosford which is tree to enter, however still a good experience

Fantastic museum spread around Duxford Airfield with a number of interesting planes e.g. Early prototype Concorde, Vulcan and Blackbird spy plane. Interesting features on the Battle of Britain and generally fascinating location with good aircraft and Tank exhibits.

Good museum, lots to see and all very interesting. Only negative is it's fairly expensive to go in, the cafes are very expensive and only one of the outdoor planes was open to go onboard which was a big shame.

Hi. There are a number of benches scattered around the airfield but on air show days trying to get a seat on these can be very hard. I would highly recommend bringing your own seats if you can. I hope you enjoy your... More

If you need a wheel chair I suggest you book it in advance as the number of electric chairs is limited.
