In line with new COVID-19 measures across England, Imperial War Museums has closed its doors to the public at the south Cambridgeshire site.

The aviation museum will be shut for at least a month.

An update on the IWM website explained: “We anticipate that we will reopen IWM London, IWM North, Churchill War Rooms and IWM Duxford on 2 December, however our closure may be extended in line with government advice.

“We will communicate our sites’ reopening via our digital channels.”

If you have a booking for general admission or an upcoming event, IWM will be in touch as soon as possible with more information.
