About The Imperial War Museum
Duxford is one of five sites of the Imperial War Museum. Duxford is Europe's premier aviation museum - as well as having one of the finest collections of tanks, military vehicles and naval exhibits in the country. This famous heritage site began as an airfield in the First World War and also played a vital role in the Second World War, firstly as an RAF fighter station and later as an American fighter base. The Land Warfare section houses the awesome artillery barrages of the First World War, through the giant tank battles of the Second World War, to the high-speed conflict of modern-day conflicts, Land Warfare charts how technological advances have changed the face of war. Within Land Warfare, The Forgotten War exhibition highlights the political, military and the personal aspects of the Second World War in the Far East, the Pacific and in particular, Burma between 1941 and 1945. Land Warfare is also home to The Royal Anglian Regiment Museum, which covers the history of the East and Royal Anglian Regiments since the amalgamations of the former County Regiments from 1958-1960. One of our favourite exhibits is 'Old Faithful' a fine example of a Humber Super Snipe Staff Car. The museum also houses a number of Alvis, Austin, Bedford, Fords and Land Rovers. *Image is not necessarily one of the museum.
