Manned entirely by lovely gents of a certain age who revel in their museum and rightly so. Small but full of all sorts of interest. It is in the middle of nowhere but persevere if you think you are lost - you won't be! It is so well worth the effort.

Spent this morning at the museum, staffed by excellent, well informed, lovely people.
The control tower is very atmospheric and all the buildings are immaculate, windows are operating theatre clean!!
If you are in the least interested in the mighty 8th, give this place a visit, you will not be disappointed.

Fantastic place. Control tower was great and seeing the area took you back in time. Volunteers were fantastic, helpful and friendly. Great cafe too. Will definitely be visiting again.

A quaint charitable attraction that delivered interesting insights into America's 100th Bomber Group that was based at Thorpe Abbotts, Norfolk.
This is a small-scale operation run by volunteers who - in my experience - provide a very warm welcome.
Exhibits are basic but tell the stories of various members of the Group and their operations, exhibiting many personal belongings and artifacts. The control tower is particularly good.
Free entry is a bonus.

This was a thought provoking place to visit. For me I found it interesting to think about the human cost and experiences of those airmen. My husband found the technical side interesting. It was a well cared for place and worth a visit.

Love this museum. Always visit when visiting family in the area. The tower is in excellent condition but I'm very impressed with the sheds and equipment on show. The café is simple and well priced but the venue of the café is excellent. Tea in a nissan hut is unique. Shop has lots to purchase from kids toys to memorabilia. Go, its free. Spend the money in the shop and café to support this fabulous time piece.

A fascinating museum run by knowledgeable volunteers who are passionate about the site's history and have countless experiences to share. The site truly is a hidden gem and worth making a visit to see, the museum is free to enter with a cafe and can be supported by donations.

Operated by volunteers who seem well informed and helpful. Culturally educating to all age groups with watch-tower overlooking old runway. Coffee shop offers hot and cold drinks and snacks. Plenty parking spaces for large groups. Expect to spend 1/2 day there - there’s plenty to see and read.

My husband and I visited recently and were so impressed with everything about this museum! If you have an infinity of everything WW2 you must visit. It is a deeply personal look into the American servicemen who were based at this airfield. It is moving, impactful and full of historical facts, interesting artifacts and personal recollections.
The staff at the museum are so knowledgeable, welcoming and eager to answer questions and share insight into a period of time which should never be forgotten.
