Overview

A small but perfectly formed museum, created inside a WW2 anti-aircraft gunner training Dome in the middle of Langham Airfield in north Norfolk. We offer a wide variety of opportunities for learning and fun for all the family - informative displays and videos, online games, a dressing up cupboard, a training gun to have a go on, a picnic site and much more.

My kind of museum! Informative, interesting but not fatiguing! Children's interactive models are good too. All in all, a very good place to spend an hour or so. Highly recommend.

Fantastic way for us and the children to learn about this secret WW2 training site and all that surrounded it. Kept the children truly engaged for over an hour, dressing up, trying the training film, touchscreen quiz etc - and the adults learned lots too.

Very interesting, definitely need to watch all three films. We went during half term so the gun was being dominated by kids but the staff arranged for us to have a go 😁. Lovely little museum with knowledgeable staff.
