First visit since the American Air Museum has been refurbished and re-arranged. There is a wide range of exhibits from WWI through to more modern types such as the impressive Thunderbolt II (there is also a P-47 Thunderbolt in the museum). Real highlights are the...More

Very good attraction, lots to see, could be more information on the ground about the planes, but that this didnt detract from the attraction. Also used the cafe which was very nice and clean, tea was good quality and not overpriced.

It is very interesting for everyone. Lots to see, plenty of interactive displays for young and 'older' people. Descriptions written in easy to read and understand English. Apart from the planes, very interesting artefacts from WW2 including shelters etc. Definitely well worth a visit.

This museum has a lot of airplanes, old and recent. It is a pity that the great hall is in fact too small for the number of planes inside.

Very well laid out and lots of information. Lots of planes to see and lots of information about them and what they were used for.

If you go to IWM Duxford just walk the extra half mile to the amazing American hanger, it is litteraly stuffed to the ceiling with iconic aircraft. Don't miss it.

In my opinion you could do both. The American Museum could be visited in 2 hours, with the rest of your time devoted to the other museums/attractions. The advantage is there are cafes/toilets at both sites. I personally... More
