Brilliant day out for all the family. My husband is an aviation enthusiast and rates it in the top 5 in the World. In some ways it surpasses them,. Dayton Ohio, Pensacola even the Smithsonian are amazing but at Duxford you have International historic displays, Restoration and Historic aircraft flying all on a genuine WW1 and WW2 Battle of Britain airfield. With original buildings mixed with the ultra modern . Their food is also 1st class now, with several excellent restaurants and cafe's, Superb!
I loved to see all of the planes! There are multiple hangers and they've got like a different country in each. In the American hanger they have like the Black Box and Mustang and of course more. In the English they've got things like the Spitfire, the Lancaster and even Concorde! It's a truly outstanding place and it's totally worth a visit!
If you're aviation fun this place is a must visit for you, it's absolute aviation heaven ;) I know only one other place where you can see Concorde from the inside, but no other place with so many different aircraft displayed. From classic wings to modern military planes, been there 3 times and I'll come again for sure. Also, air shows bring plenty of aircraft on display. I'm sure you'll enjoy your visit :)
A worth while visit. You need to spend a full day as there is lots to see. Disabled facilities are second to none. The site is vast but for people with disabilities ,or who are unable to walk far for whatever reason , there is a mini bus on site. Just ask a member of staff in any hanger you are in and the bus will pick you up and take you to which ever hanger you want next. There is no charge for this service. Staff and volunteers are fabulous and knowledgeable too. My favourite place to go.
Free parking and well priced family tickets are the start of an excellent day out. There is so much too see and do here and the 3 main halls are on two levels so you can see the aircraft from two levels. On the ground you are so close you could touch them (but no touch allowed). Some you can go inside also. There is also quite a bit of education about flight. The tank hall tells a more obvious war story as opposed to a mix of aircraft which is a good reminder. The American hall again is excellent with the giant B52. This is also a working airfield so there always things going on. Plenty of toilets available but the halls are spaced out so if you do them all it is 1.25 miles to walk excluding the walking once in the halls. A excellent day and will go back.
Amazing and well worth the money. A wide range of land, sea and of course air vehicles from the first planes flown in the great wars to current or recently retired. One of the nicest touches was the American hangar was in itself a memorial to all the American men who never came back home. My favourite was 002, the prototype Concorde that was put through it's paces before the Concorde BA and AF fleet went into production, due to personal history with the old girls. The staff were very knowledgeable and knew their planes and the areas history well. I will definitely be going again, as I will not let my son grow up ignorant of the allied forces' services And sacrifices for our freedom.
Place is REALLY MASSIVE. Very easy to find, car park is large. I would advise setting aside a full day to see everything. We spent 7 hours here. Plenty of seats to rest your legs. Washroom facilities are numerous. Refreshments area's are well located but a bit pricey but very tasty. If you are lucky Spitfire flights may be on. All in all a great day out highly recommend.
A great place to visit. We have annual passes so visit often. Our son who is 5 loves visiting here. Great on a sunny day to take a picnic and watch the planes flying around. Warning though, there is no shade and it's very open so you don't realise how hot it is.
Fantastic museum. Really well laid out and excellent value. Food options aren't great if you are trying to eat healthy - could do with more plain salads and more fruit options
Fantastic place, with at least 6 different museums set in a huge green open aerodrome. These exhibitions are mostly aviation themed and include the American Air Museum and the Battle of Britain museum and have some very rare and interesting airplanes including the Concord, the SR-71 Blackbird and many many more. You can easily spend a whole day here and not see it all. Oh, and while wandering from exhibition to exhibition, you have Spitfires, P-51’s and Tiger Moths flying over!
Excellent place to visit. The main hanger with all the planes is fantastic. Even more so when you can actually go into some of them. The guides are really helpful too. The 'ckassrooms' around the top are very good too for the younger ones.
Excellent collection and informative. Just spent 5 1/2 hours there with my 8 year old son. All the staff were incredibly welcoming and most helpful. Loved every minute.
An iconic collection of historic aircraft and exhibits related to flight, though being part of the Imperial War Museum it has a military bias. Ticket prices for this year have unfortunately reached dizzying heights and the cafe and shop prices have been hiked as well. There is lots to see and do and the whole operation is supported by an army of keen and helpful volunteers. Do try to visit on a day with decent weather though because there is no longer any transport to get you between the hangers and exhibition sites, other than a little shuttle for disabled people or for those with mobility problems. This means that exploring the whole site will involve some very long walks.
This is one of my favorite places in the world! I love to research WW2 especially the planes and they have so many there. I went to Britain over the summer and spent a day there, the one regret I have is not spending more time there. I would recommend two days there to see everything.
Had a great day around the museum with family. Plenty to learn about and see. Some more detail in the American hanger would have been good. Had to search for some time to see what the aircraft where and no history for them. The bus ride back to the entrance was a life saver.
Wonderful museum full of history. They have an amazing collection of mostly WWII planes but also a lot from the cold War era and also the tank section is well stocked the museum is also used as a restoration workshop so it is great to see many of the aircraft actually being worked on. Shuttle service between hangars is a godsend as they are quite spaced out. Some of the toilet facilities were very basic but other than this I couldn't fault the place. 3 restaurants provide hot drinks and hot food with good and friendly service. Staff around the museum are very helpful and knowledgeable and more than happy to talk through the history. I'd recommend the airshows held here as they are spectacular.

A very impressive and thoroughly well laid out collection of aircraft in spacious hangars with lots of excellent viewing points. Ability to step inside a prototype Concorde, get up close to a Vulcan, Spitfire, Tornado, Harrier, B52 and SR71 Blackbird amongst many others with excellent photo opportunities and viewing points. Lots of fun interactive things to do and lots of information and other exhibits. All on a working airfield with light aircraft taking off and landing regularly. A well stocked gift shop and plenty of clean toilet facilities. Polite informative staff. Free parking too. A must visit. Highly recommended
