A spectacular building, the real climax of the Imperial War Museum Duxford. As a non-aircraft enthusiast, I still found the exhibits fascinating with many poignant experiences of War being brought to life. The American museum is a tribute to the sacrifice of the American Air Force in World War Two, with many personnel based in the region, thousands who never... More

This museum is easily the biggest in the uk with a vast collection of aircraft including the SR71 Blackbird, a B52 stratofortress and a B29 superfortress! You can easily spend a full day here. It has a working runway with aircraft constantly coming and going aswell as 4 huge hangers filled with aircraft and a 5th with tanks and armoured... More

This is an excellent exhibit. Great building packed with planes and informative displays. Small cafe near entrance serving coffee, sandwiches and cakes. Wheelchair and pushchair friendly.

A brilliant space filled with countless iconic aircraft, vehicles and other ephemora. There is a chunk of steelwork from the World Trade Centre and even a section of the Berlin Wall. All in all a fabulous and important part of the Duxford collection.

I went to Duxford believing the main attractions would be the R.A.F collection however this is a star attraction with the most famous American examples of war planes you could imagine outside the U.S.A.

The American Air Museum is part of the wider Duxford Air Museum, so your ticket gets you into both. Happy days! The hanger that houses this part of the museum can only be described as swish. It's a large metal and glass affair that stands out amongst the older buildings on the airfield. Inside is staggering from an engineering perspective,... More

Great for a family day out. Interesting things for all ages. Nice to go to a museum where you can touch and actually go inside the displays. Tip, buy the annual pass.

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
