  • The American Air Museum houses an astonishing collection of US aircraft and other exhibits, restored to very high static display standards. The cordons are thin, and unobtrusive, allowing you to get very close to the exhibits. The recent update and reshuffle means there is more to see than ever, and the addition of a huge number of smaller displays (uniforms, theatres of battle, 9/11, SR71 etc) is fantastic. There's a lot to take in, and plenty to read, but presented beautifully. Brilliant, and on par with the rest of IWM Duxford.
