Bentwaters Cold War Museum

Admission £5.00 Children under 14 FREE -

Museum is based in the United States Air Force (USAF) hardened command post on the former Bentwaters airbase which closed after the withdrawal of the USAF in 1993 and is believed to be the only such building open to the public in the UK and Europe.
Visitors can experience the Cold War history with guides and talks about the operations of the base with detailed displays of the units stationed at both RAF Bentwaters and nearby RAF Woodbridge since WWII.
Aircraft on display include English Electric Lightning, Hawker Hunter, BAC Jaguar, McDonnell Douglas Phantom & Harrier.
Plenty of car parking space and is suitable for all ages and has the added benefit of being an ideal all weather visitor attraction.
The new café and shop has proven to be a great success offering light refreshments and souvenirs.
