The American Air Museum is home to the best collection of American military aircraft on public display outside of North America.

The museum tells the story of two nations united through war, loss, love and duty, from the World War I.to the present day. It stands as a memorial to nearly 30,000 US airmen who gave their lives while flying from British bases – including Duxford – during War World II.

Duxford is the UK’s best-preserved World War II fighter station and was home to the US Eighth Air Force’s 78th Fighter Group from 1943–45.

The award-winning American Air Museum building was designed by celebrated British architect, Lord Norman Foster. It is located at IWM Duxford, near Cambridge and opened in 1997.

The American Air Museum in Britain is a registered 501(c)(3) organization – a tax-exempt nonprofit organization in the United States. It supports the conservation and educational work of the museum located in the UK, and americanairmuseum.com.
