We are a small but steadily growing museum, based near to Cambridge, dedicated to honouring all those who served at Bottisham Airfield during the 1940's: The RAF, the USAAF 8th Air Force and the Belgian Air Force, and also remembering the contribution made by local people. We are now operating out of the last remaining airfield buildings to exist within the airfield's original perimeter.
We hope to open the museum on a regular basis from April to October.
