A great place for families to see planes up close and personal. A great place also for WWII veterans and history buffs to share information if you are lucky to be there on a day when a WWII reunion group is visiting.

The curator has managed to not only put together a collection of world class aircraft, but also to painstakingly create numerous stories of individuals connected to these aircraft. This feat enables the visitor to gain an understanding of the grisly purpose of the machines on...More

F-15 front and center. The place where the Eagle belongs. This museum is absolutely well done. The who's who of American Aviation.

I loved the array of American Military aircraft here. I found the "pop-up" mini exhibitions (namely the items belonging to wartime journalists and peace activists) amazing, because we all know the huge stories of the war, but not so much of those who went in...More

The American Air Museum is included in the admission at IWM Duxford. It probably has the largest concentration of American aircraft outside of the US. One unexpected highlight was seeing a piece of the Berlin Wall. The design of the building gives some unique and...More

How long is a good time to spend here? Main reason for visiting Cambridge is to visit the IWM Duxford for a Classic Wings flight. Is it possible to see both museums and do the flight in one day?
