An interesting, well presented memorial to all those who served USAAF in WW2. Well worth the visit. The museum is not open all year round so check the opening times.

This place is just incredible, and although small in terms of other local attractions, this place is more about conserving the memory of wartime hardships and the role the Americans had in the second world war. The tower is amazing, and you can make out...More

An excellent Second World War museum telling the story of the Bloody 100th Bomb Group. Very friendly staff where some were children who lived just next to the base. Fascinating to listen to their stories of the brave aircrew who flew from the base.

We came across this place when driving to Tescos to stock up and some items for camping. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the kids completed a questionnaire which they found lots of fun.
