About us 

The American Air Museum explores Anglo-American collaboration in conflict and its impact on people’s lives.

Our collections help people to understand Britain and America’s experiences of war, now and in the future.

As part of the IWM family, we work to uncover the causes, course, and consequences of war, from the First World War through to the present-day.
