Remembrance Sunday

Sunday 10 November

Free admission

Remembrance Sunday has a special significance in the IWM Duxford calendar. On this day, we offer free admission to the museum for all and we very much hope that people will take the opportunity to visit us as we remember members of the Armed Forces who gave their lives in active service.

In addition to the traditional two-minute silence and Service of Remembrance, we’ll be hosting hands-on activities across the museum, where visitors of all ages can learn more about commemorating remembrance.

There may also be the opportunity to meet veterans and serving members of the Armed Forces.

We hope that you can join us at IWM Duxford to remember those who gave their lives in conflicts past and present and to actively commemorate those serving men and women who are no longer with us.
