IWM Duxford Duxford
#2 of 50 Museums in Cambridgeshire
The museums themselves were fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable to plane enthusiasts and their partners alike, the friends of duxford who chatted to visitors were informative and friendly
Many aircraft to see, but also indoor space for more aircraft and regimental museums, the best of which must be the Parachute Regiment museum which was moved here when the Para's moved from Aldershot to Colchester.

The National Trust now have it open as a museum and my young children love visiting to see how the mill once worked.

... with tanks crashing through buildings, exploits in Burma, German artillery being attacked by a tank, etc. Very professionally displayed - definitely better than some of the military museums we saw in London.
The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum is in Hangar 8 in the IWM Duxford, IWM Duxford itself is a full day out and The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum is a fine addition to it.I took my two sons (6yrs old and 13yrs old)...

Anthropology is the fascinating study of humans and Cambridge has one of the best museums in England dedicated to this topic, with exhibits from around the world including amazing totem poles.
Many interesting museums and college buildings, hosting an array of historical and scientific items.

Other museums or private individuals who in fact own some pieces and have loaned them, have done so without photo permission, that is of course their right.
A very interesting museum charting the history and manufacturing methods of stained glass work over centuries, some excellent works on display, good audio guide included and excellent value for money.

Entering the museum was part of our Imp War Museum membership which I would highly recommend if you are going to do Duxford and the IWM museums in London.
I place this museum in the top tier of Aviation museums in the world, on par with the Wright-Patterson AFB museum in Dayton.

We simply love unassuming museums that must struggle to be viable yet pack so much into their collections.
a brilliant museum in a quite part of ely, the exhibits need more time than we had to spare, a full day is needed to do justice, well laid out , excellent exhibits, worth our visit to ely just to come here

As such, it is very moving, giving a different perspective from air museums with their larger collections but emphasis on the planes themselves.
