Duxford Imperial War Museum


Getting There

The Duxford Imperial War Museum is located just west of the M11 and a few miles south of Cambridge (at Junction 10). The museum is also accessible via the Citi 7 bus from Cambridge (one of the stops is the train station) though during air shows a free bus shuttle (also from the train station) is also available.

Permanent Exhibits


There are a number of permanent exhibits at the museum:

  • Airspace - The newest hall this contains a number of aircraft including the Concorde (amazing, though be aware that occasionally they will charge a separate admission fee into the Concorde)
  • The American Air Museum - An intriguing building towards the west side of the site
  • Land Warfare Hall - The building at the far west of the site

The American Air Museum

The other hangers (2 through 5) house various exhibits on restoration.

Air Shows

Autumn Air Show (2007)

Air shows are held throughout the warmer months with the one in the summer being the largest. If driving be aware that parking may be a problem and that a long walk may be in order (the best transport option is to catch the free shuttle bus from Cambridge – particularly the Trumpington Park and Ride just east of Junction 11 of the M11.
