Thanks to the Yanks.

Appropriate place to display US aircraft, as Duxford was a major US base during WWII. Wartime aircraft on display, plus many cold war and even modern types.

Had a brilliant day out here. Visited on a week day, plenty of parking spaces. The reception staff were very helpful and the cafeteria was well catered. It was a whole day out and very enjoyable

I visted the museum recently so it is still fresh in my memory. The exhibits are brilliant, the SR- 71 (Known as the "Blackbird") was a personal favourite of mine and there are numerous noticeboards which tell you information about all of the aircraft. Overall I would strongly recommend visiting, its suitable for people of all ages my family certainly... More

A superb world class museum with unique exhibits and attractions. It pays a very nice tribute to those who gave all for our freedom in a modern and interactive way. The fact that it is a living museum with aircraft undergoing maintenance activities is always a bonus and being able to this up close is a real privilege.

Nearly all types of U.S. WW2 aircraft are on display here. Stunning! To stand under a B17! a B52, a blackbird amazing. All pristine and ready to go. An amazing memorial to all those boys who came over here to fight for freedom, but, never returned.

A must see for everyone to learn about the American contribution to the liberation of England and Europe during WWII. Everything from the examples of aircraft to the monument depicting the losses incurred in the campaign reinforces the importance of eternal vigilance against the forces who threaten our freedoms.

See USAF aircraft including a Blackbird, Flying Fortress and so many others. The whole display has been rebuilt. and you can see it all for the price of the Duxford ticket i.e. no extra entrance fee.

A very impressive display of iconic aircraft. Something for anyone who likes aircraft. The sheer size of some of the exhibits is quite breath-taking.
