The Museum is 40 years old this year- 1981 to 2021.
Parham Airfield Museum comprises the 390th Bombardment Group Memorial Air Museum and the Museum of the British Resistance Organisation, operating under one Management Committee. We are a charity and depend on volunteer support & donations to help with necessary maintenance and ensure continued preservation of the buildings and its contents.
Inside the 390th part of the museum exhibits include a unique and rare collection of recovered Second World War aircraft engines, parts of Allied and German aircraft, uniforms, numerous photographs, documents, combat records, paintings and memorabilia relevant to the U.S 8th Air Force, the Royal Air Force and the German Luftwaffe of the Second World War. The British Resistance aspect has a range of memorabilia and equipment to tell the story of the secret plans to fight from behind the lines had the Nazis invaded Britain. There is also a replica underground base.
New for 2021 - we have a new Exhibition Hall for our British Resistance artefacts and other displays.
