  • Fascinating insight into life on a WW2 American bomber base. Incredible number of artifacts and exhibits with many accompanied with 'their story' as to how they came to be in the museum. Also, a section dedicated to the little known escapades of 'Britain's resistance'. Convenient car parking, a cafe and souvenir shop together with friendly and knowledgeable staff who are on hand to enhance your understanding of this chapter of Britain's history. Thoroughly recommended!
  • Well worth a visit, home of the USAAF 390th bomb group. The museum will hold your interest for hours, beautifully maintained and to complete your visit a small tea room for tea and cakes.
  • Excellent museum- a pleasant and informative way to spend a wet afternoon. Great views from roof to help understand what the airfield would have been like . Helpful volunteers, great stamper activity for children, and all for free.
  • Marvellous volunteers that do a sterling job looking after this place. Some incredible stories and artefacts. Cute little tea room too. I'm surprised that this place isn't packed out
  • This airfield museum is delightful. It is extremely well maintained and the staff are unbelievably knowledgeable, professional, and friendly. My grandfather was stationed here back in WWII and they appreciate visitors so much they even gave me free souveniers to remember my visit and all the heroes that dedicated their lives to defending freedom. There are even volunteers here that fought in WWII and were stationed here. IT IS A FREE MUSEUM! The best free museum I have ever been to. The displays, sodiers journals, and the bunkers and military equipment they have is amazing. NOTE THAT THE ONLY 1-star review is from Uberlaser who states "the museum has been closed for a while", he obviously has no idea what he is talking about. I went here 15 years ago AND AGAIN 2 WEEKS ago and it has NEVER closed. Get your facts straight @Uberlaser before you poorly rate an amazing place.
