The American Air Museum is a wonderful part of The Imperial War Museum Duxford and is free to enter for visitors to Duxford (£20 entry fee per adult). It has many planes from the Cold War on display including V-Bombers (Including the Vulcan) and fighters...More
What else is there to say about Duxford’s Imperial War Museum that hasn’t already been said? It’s amazing.
I will say that getting there from London was pretty easy (albeit not the cheapest) despite the posts indicating a lack of taxis. We took the direct...More

If you're going to be at IWM Duxford I think it would be impossible to miss this hangar for its size and importance in the local history and airfield. The unusual design brings a lot of aircraft in one place to view from various angles...More

In my opinion you could do both. The American Museum could be visited in 2 hours, with the rest of your time devoted to the other museums/attractions.

A great day out, you will enjoy it.
