Who we are

The museum is first and foremost a centre for aviation archaeology. The team running the Fenland and West Norfolk Aviation Museum have spent many years researching and recovering the remains of crashed aircraft.

 

These remains are now proudly displayed, with their full historical context explained. We also display photographs, uniforms, engines, guns and many other artefacts related to civil and military aviation over the last century. The remains of several aircraft - British and German - lost during World War Two are displayed within the museum. In many cases there were no survivors from the crash, the cause of which can only be assumed.

Dogs are always welcome to the Fenland Aviation Museum as long as they are kept on a lead. We are happy for you to take photography too.

Our history


Thirty years after the end of the Second World War, the authorities decided to allow groups of aviation archaeological enthusiasts to apply for licences that authorise digs to take place in known areas where aircraft have crashed.


The aircrafts could be recovered providing that there were no human remains within the wreckage, as any crash site that contained human bodies were considered to be war graves.
