The 1940 Operations Room
The Operations Room was the nerve centre of Duxford’s Battle of Britain. From here the men and women who worked on the ground at Duxford directed the station’s pilots into combat.
In one of the best-preserved buildings of its kind, Duxford’s curators have faithfully recreated the Operations Room as it was in the summer of 1940. Step back in time to the Second World War – hear the sounds of a German air raid and see the equipment, charts and plans which mapped the movements of the aircraft in battle overhead.
Experience the size and scale of the fantastic military vehicles in the Land Warfare exhibition in partnership with Royal Anglian Regiment Museum. Wander through themed landscapes to discover how fighting on the land has changed from the First World War through to modern conflicts.
