Imperial War Museums – IWM Duxford

IWM Duxford, Cambridgeshire, CB22 4QR

Europe’s largest air museum

Imperial War Museums is the world’s leading museum of war and conflict. Founded while the First World War was still raging, it gives voice to the extraordinary experiences of ordinary people forced to live their lives in a world torn apart by conflict.

The Trainee is based at IWM Duxford, Europe’s largest air museum. Visitors can walk through the same hangars and buildings as those who served at RAF Duxford, and see aircraft taking to the skies from the airfield where Spitfires first flew.
