What’s Here

First opened to the public in the summer of 2007, the museum covers the history of RAF Davidstow Moor 1942-1945, and also the RAF, Army and Navy in Cornwall. It has exhibits displaying the home front, the Davidstow/Falklands exercise in 1982, and has a film show running throughout the day and guided tours of the airfield by arrangement. An ‘official opening’ was later staged on 14 June 2008.


On the C-class road close to the junction of the A39 from Wadebridge and the A395 from Launceston, north of Camelford, north Cornwall. The actual museum is located mid-way between the factory and the airfield itself.
