What we offer on a school trip
Here at the Imperial War Museum Duxford, students can uncover the causes, course, and consequences of war, from the First World War through to present-day conflict. IWM Duxford is not just a museum but working airfield, visit and you’ll likely see aircrafts take to the skies from the very place Spitfires first flew!
A visit to IWM Duxford is a full day out for schools with plenty of areas to explore. Students will have the opportunity to walk through the same hangars and buildings as those who served at RAF Duxford. Inside every hangar and exhibition, you’ll discover iconic aircraft, see historic objects from our collections and uncover hundreds of personal stories of the many lives impacted by conflict.
Our extraordinary volunteers help bring those stories to life and support your visit. We also offer Learning Sessions that are curriculum mapped to support students from upper Key Stage 2 – Key Stage 4.
