Bentwaters Cold War Museum
Ranked #6 of 36 things to do in Woodbridge
Attraction details
Reviewed July 3, 2014

This is a well arranged museum with a vast array of dioramas showing the airfield and buildings. The Cold War was somewhat secretive but today you can view the ops room just as it was. There are also some surprising exhibits! The cafe serves delicious cakes and the staff are all friendly and very knowledgeable ready to answer any questions. Definitely worth a visit!

A very informative exhibition with little martians hidden to keep the children and my 32 year old son focused. I enjoyed the mix of information and had a lovely coffee outside from the café.

Many of us have lived through the cold war era but probably have only a limited knowledge of what part the American air force bases in the UK played in that "war". If that is the case with you then visit the Bentwaters Cold War Museum ( BCWM ) for an enjoyable and educational visit. Not a large museum, allow 2 or 3 hours for a visit, but very friendly, approachable and knowledgeable staff. The museum is on the old RAF Bentwaters site which is in Rendlesham forest so keep a look out for aliens.

Considering this place is run on volunteer work I was amazed by the knowledge of the staff and the amount of exhibitions in the museum! A great half day outing!
