The Museum is an award winning, volunteer run, visitor attraction which offers an enjoyable and informative day out for the family.
Housed in the original Grade II listed 1942 radar operations building, the Museum provides a unique window into the history of radar covering the period of WWII to the Cold War in addition to the exhibition spaces, offers the visitor a wide range of facilities.
The museum has twenty-three exhibition rooms and over 10,000 display items. It is suggested that you allow yourself between 2-3 hours to see our entire collection and attend our two presentation talks.
We are open on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Bank Holiday Mondays.
Presentations are given daily in both the World War Two room and the Cold War Room. The first presentation of the day will be approximately 10:30 am (depending on visitor arrivals) and all presentations are approximately 30 minutes in duration. Reception staff will announce throughout the day, via our tannoy system, the time of the next presentation.
Please note that because of the nature of the military building, which was constructed in 1942, it does mean that access to all areas is not always possible for those using wheelchairs or who have difficulty with stairs. Click here to view the Museum Accessibility.
