From Britain’s finest hour to space-age defence systems
A visit to this massively atmospheric museum includes a compelling and informative guided tour. You’ll be walked through a history of Radar and Air Defence from 1935 to the present day Space Defence Systems. Recalling scenes from the best WWII and Bond movies, two of the museum highlights are the original 1942 Battle of Britain and Cold War operations rooms. Collections from the nearby RAF Coltishall bring to life the personal stories behind this historic air base and include hand-painted aircraft panels, photographs, trophies and WWII hero Sir Douglas Bader’s mascot ‘Baders Bunny’. A sociable, nostalgic and eye-opening place to visit.
