Notes

The museum is based in the former USAF hardened command post on the former Bentwaters airfield. The main war operations room and battle cabin have been restored to original condition. There is also the BT telephone exchange room, and decontamination showers and airlock to explore. Exhibition rooms cover the history of RAF Bentwaters from W.W.II until the base closed in 1993.
