Located at Duxford, England, the American Air Museum in Britain stands as a memorial to almost 30,000 U.S. airmen and women 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 5.5 million visitors who have come to pay tribute to fallen airmen and to admire the outstanding collections and exhibits.

The museum is the only facility of its kind outside the United States that commemorates and highlights the special bond between the United States and the United Kingdom.

We seek to continue to deliver the museum’s mission with your support: to protect the past and to inspire current and future generations with the stories of American airmen and women from 1918 to the current day – strengthening the special link between the museum’s physical location in the United Kingdom and its spiritual home in the United States.
