How to get there:

The museum is accessed by a roadway from off the Harrington to Lamport road adjacent to the bridge over the A14 (M1-A1 link road). The museums are about a mile down the roadway from this junction. Although the roadway is relatively narrow it has several passing places and is suitable for coaches.


Displays and exhibits within the museum depict the history of the airfield and show the work carried out by both the RAF at Tempsford and the 801st (Provisional) / 492nd Bomb Group USAAF, especially during Operation Carpetbagger, and their secret missions to deliver agents and supplies to resistance groups in Occupied Europe during the Second World War.
