  • This place is a must! It is included in the price when you visit Duxford airfield and the planes are amazing. It has interactive exhibits which the kids loved and kept everyone in the family engrossed...  more »
  • Visited with 7yo and 3yo. The American Air Museum has recently had a refurb and packs a lot into a fairly small space. With most of the planes suspended in the air the ground space is given over to sm...  more »
  • There are so many planes crammed into this hanger, which is really built around the B52. You can touch (Though they say they don't want you to) the exhibits  more »

  • Great exhibit area showing aircraft & equipment from WWI to modern day, and with lots of personal touches with feedback from actual pilots and combatants, showing their uniforms, medals and special stories. Good cafe too. A welcome break with this being the 2nd last exhibit furthest away from the entrance. My generation sometimes challenge the "special relationship" between the US & UK, bit this exhibit reinforces the fact that it has existed in every worldwide conflict since WWI, where few could argue that the UK & US are formidable combination of cultures, resource and fighting forces as allies.
  • Great and captivating one day experience at Duxton American Museum. A thrilling travel in time that gives you loads of goosebumps
  • Fascinating place. Lots of classic aircraft and a few other things. The ww 2 memorial is a long glass wall with an engraved aircraft for each American plane lost in action. Very eye-opening and moving.
  • Loved the experience of this museum; well laid out, plenty of knowledgeable volunteers to ask. My Grandson loved the sound and vision; I loved the flying exhibitions and the atmosphere. Defo a place to return to xx
  • Excellent collection of American planes which are well displayed. Includes a Blackbird, Warthog, B52, Flying Fortress and many others. Well worth the long walk from the main entrance.
