‪This is a real gem. There are now several buildings packed with artefacts, stories and it's a great way to spend a few hours. Don't miss it.‬

‪Fitting tribute to RAF Davidstow Moor‬
بمفردك • سبتمبر 2021
‪I was warmly welcomed on arrival to this lovely museum and Memorial, which is rather like a Tardis, much larger on the inside than it appears outside. There is much to see and read, and I was given a personal guided tour. Everything is very well laid out and labelled. Excellent!‬

‪We arrived and were greeted by the most passionate patrons of the museum. These people deserve MBE’s for their passion and commitment to constructing and maintaining this memorial to the fallen. So many amazing stories of Davidstow Airfield and how it effected the lives of the people based and associated. Thank you for an amazing day.‬

‪I did not think it would be that big but i was wrong! Full of interesting memorabilia and information, the lady at the front desk was funny, and one of the men came into room 11 and told us the story behind the things in there. So much interesting history, we spent a good 2 hours there. Would definitely recommend visiting!‬

‪Amazing Museum - A Definite Must See‬
أغسطس 2021
‪Where do I start in regards to this amazing museum?

Entry is free though donations are very welcome.

Located in what was once the sergeants shower block - the pipes are still visible, this museum may be small but it's packed with all sorts of memorabilia, personal stories, information and photographs.

You will learn the history of R.A.F Davidstow Moor and the people who served there between 1942 - 1945 / you will also learn about the animals who served during the war and there is even a shed that tells the story of the Cold War 1962 though this is a 'work in progress'.

There is also a display of crashed aircraft parts and a large collection of model aircraft.

Most importantly were two awesome people we met at the museum, one was Margery who gave us a history lesson: the farm belonged to her late husband and was returned to him after the war, at this point the land was being farmed and the sergeants shower block was used to house pigs before being turned into the museum.

The other person we met was David Keast who is a volunteer and so much more! He has put the exhibitions together over many years, written a book called: R.A.F. Davidstow Moor (on sale at the museum) and is extremely knowledgeable & passionate at R.A.F. Davidstow Moor.

Both David & Margery knew some of the people who served there and know their stories. If you visit take time out to talk to Margery and / or David, I promise you that you will learn something.

Is this museum worth a visit? Definitely! Especially if you're into history / WWII or you're a model maker.‬

‪A very special experience in north Cornwall‬
أغسطس 2021
‪My 16 year-old son and I recently visited this hugely interesting and special archive. Organised and run by 86 year-old David Keast and his wife, this is a one-off exhibition that drills down into the real history of Davidstow Moor RAF Airfield, which was operational between 1942 and 1945. This is an isolated part of North Cornwall that resonates with memories of long-departed airmen and aircrew. This former Coastal Command airfield has been brought to life by David and his team; bear in mind that this unique archive receives no financial support from anyone and entirely depends on people's generosity and donations when visiting.

We both very much recommend you visit this wonderful museum and support something (and someone) that is uniquely British.‬

‪Very special museum‬
العائلة • أغسطس 2021
‪We stopped here before the actual war museum and I am so glad we did as it was a lot better. When we arrived we was met by a veteran who was so passionate and knowledgeable about everything I was totally hooked. The types of things they had I hadn't ever seen before and it was so impressive.
Personally visit here and miss out the war museum next door. Worth a visit if you have a spare 30-60 min‬

‪Well worth a visit‬
زوجان • يونيو 2021
‪David and his team of volunteers made us very welcome. No entrance fee but donations welcomed. Not to be confused with the bigger museum right behind it which deals with Cornwal at war, this museum is focused on the RAF station at the nearby airfields
There is a host of exhibits and lots of personal stories
Definitely worth a visit! A model makers dream!‬

‪Popped in after having been next door at the other museum. Again it’s run by incredibly knowledgeable folks who are more than happy to spare their time and knowledge to bring history to life. ‬

‪This very interesting memorial museum will not be opening in 2020 due to the risks associated with Covid-19. The volunteers are working on some new displays for the 2021 season.‬
