I was very impressed with the exhibits and the honour bestowed upon not only the US Mighty Eighth but also the Royal Air Force were very well represented and respected. The volunteers were very passionate in telling you every aspect of each exhibit.

The majority of our exhibits are indoors. The Mighty Eighth is 90,000 square feet, and you can learn all about the Eighth Air Force walking through the museum.
