Located at Duxford, England, the American Air Museum in Britain stands as a memorial to almost 30,000 U.S. Airmen who gave their lives flying from British shores in World War II in the defense of democracy and freedom.
Since its opening in 1997, the 70,000 square foot museum has hosted over 5.5 million visitors who have come to pay tribute to fallen airmen and to admire the outstanding collections and exhibits.
The museum honors nearly a century of American Airmen from 1918 to today.
It is the only facility of its kind outside the United States that celebrates, commemorates, and highlights this special relationship between the United States and the United Kingdom.
As one generation transitions into the next, we seek to continue to deliver the museum’s mission with your support: to protect the past, educate the present, and sustain for the future, while strengthening the unique link between the museum’s location in the United Kingdom and its spiritual home in the United States.
