I have visited the base twice now coming from Aberdeen - I could spend all day there reading and learning from the exhibits and volunteers. A superb museum and so much to learn from stories of the base. Nice cafe as well to sit and chat. A must visit when in the area. Bought an airfield map from the very well stocked shop and now framed on my wall. Thanks again folks and keep up the great work!

Great place to visit and learn
Aug 2021 • Family
We popped into here on the way to our holiday home as an unplanned stop. But so glad we did. The site doesn't appear very big from the outside, but is a proper aladdins cave once within. Our 9 year old son loved it. Completing the quiz as we went around and answering all the questions. The attendants around the site were very welcoming and knowledgeable of the history of the site. Would absolutely recommend this as a place to visit for all ages.

Excellent Museum of both the Airfield History and the British Resistance.
Aug 2021
This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the roll of the airfield and the 390th Bomb Group and the British Resistance that operated in the area. It's a real eye opener as the British Resistance is not well known about. The staff a approachable, knowledgeable and very enthusiastic about the museum. There is a nice little cafe at the entrance to the museum. The air traffic control tower it well worth a visit as it shows the layout of the airfield and the tower guide explains the positions of various features of the old layout.

This was our second visit and we will be going a gain

Great visit for all ages.
Aug 2021 • Family
Loved it! Such an interesting place, loads to see. The children were given quizzes which they really enjoyed and got a little prize (sweets) at the end. All ages equally enjoyed it. My only disappointment was that we didn’t give ourselves enough time to see it all, allow at least 2 hours, this place is great!

A great museum all the way around
Sep 2020
We had a marvelous visit. This museum is operated by volunteers who are friendly, knowledgeable, and very committed to preserving the legacy of those who served at this base in WWII.
My father was based here during the war, until he was shot down on his 13th mission. He was a POW until the end of the war. It was very gratifying and humbling to see that his service was remembered and appreciated.

Visit to Suffolk

Fantastic visit to Parham Airfield Museum run by enthusiastic and informative volunteers. Excellent displays of objects and artefacts which told the story of the airmen who lived, fought and died in combat during World War 2. Poignant as my grandfather was a doctor in Suffolk on a US airbase (unknown which base he was with). Thoroughly recommend this museum.
