This museum has been on my to do list for a few years. The Heritage Centre celebrates the history of RAF Scampton and the famous 617 Dam Busters squadron, which is still active, but now based at a different station.
The centre is staffed by mainly ex-RAF service people and very much benefits from their passion for the subject and sense of duty and history. There were some great insights and anecdotes along the way which bring the service and those who served in it to life! The sacrifices made by very young men become even more poignant.
I was sad to hear the the airfield has been sold and that the future of the Heritage Centre is uncertain. Given that the Dam Busters is one of the most famous squadrons and unique missions that the RAF has ever carried out, a way must be found to preserve as much of the extensive and historical collection as possible, as well as Guy Gibson's office and other parts of the hangar.
Visits, where possible have to be arranged in advance for security reasons, see the RAF Scampton web page.

Forget everything you think you know about RAF Scampton and its history and be prepared to have a few myths busted too!
Greeted at the Main Gate, details checked and car passes and ID's handed out. Following the guides, we were taken to, and parked up outside the Heritage Centre hangar.
Luckily for us, the Red Arrows were all lined up, ready for a 7 ship practice, prior to flying to Croatia and Greece to obtain their PDA.
Tour group was split into two for ease.
Started outside where you can see a Bouncing Bomb, the dog's grave (spoiler alert, not black) a Tall Boy and a Grand Slam.
Going inside, the sense of history is almost overwhelming but awe inspiring with many personal objects donated by past personnel or their families.
I didn't know that there were two other recipients of the Victoria Cross, Sergeant John Hannah and Flight Lieutenant Roderick A.B. Learoyd and that is something that the Ethos and Heritage Centre are trying to address.
What really brought the tour to life for me, was the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide, Keith. Hearing that visitors on previous tours, who served on the base, had been able to confirm details relating to many of the "myths" and also, busting them too.
We had a brief interlude to watch the Red Arrows but, as I'm Lincoln born and bred, I can see them any day! To be honest, I'd have rather spent more time in the centre, examining the exhibits!
Highly recommended. Will definitely book another visit as three and a half hours really wasn't long enough!

Absolutely fantastic day out! Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative, I never knew they built bases in a crescent shape and the reason why before today! He also answered alot of questions. Saw alot and learnt alot of things, I particularly enjoyed seeing Guy Gibsons office. Of course seeing the Red Arrows was a lucky bonus. Felt extremely privileged to have been able to take the tour before it closes :-( Thank you very much!

A great experience in such an interesting museum. From meeting us in the carpark to the end of the tour, the volunteer was very welcoming and extremely knowledgeable about all the exhibits. His fascinating stories added to the experience. Must see for all military aviation enthusiasts.

This was an amazing experience. The people leading the tour were very knowledgeable, friendly and welcoming. They made everyone feel at ease and took the time to get to know us. The exhibits are interesting and there are plenty of chances to take photos and ask questions.

What a wonderful and so informative museum, and so important in the history of bomber command, of course this is where the dam busters took off from and what a historic mission that was, another place a couple of hours isn't long enough, I have to come back and spend more time here, simply fabulous

Another wonderful visit and many thanks to all the staff who made it such a fantastic experience for our annual homage to 617, special thanks go to Pete. Make sure you spent time in the hanger as well as Gibby's office. There is a couple of very interesting privately owned aircraft in there. There is now a superb model of the Mohne Dam made by Cadets at a local Air Cadet Sqn. Don't forget to buy some great gifts and gizzets from the shop ( relocated to the hanger for covid reasons). See you next time folks.

What a wonderful experience. Our guide, Keith, was a fountain of knowledge and gave clear and informative answers to all our questions. The range of exhibits covered the Scampton base, 617 squadron, the Dam Busters mission, and many of the aircrew - as well as the Red Arrows.
Our four hour visit was fascinating from beginning to end, made more enjoyable by the coming and going of the Reds on train exercises throughout the day.
No charges made, so make sure you purchase souvenirs or make a donation, please.

The tour of the aircraft hanger was the highlight. But overall the tour was excelent. It is mainly aimed an enthusiast. Lots of history and items

You do need to plan ahead several weeks ahead to arrange the visit. See their website

You can take camera but there as some small restictions on what you can photograph.

Do take a snack for the mid tour break. There are only Tea/coffee available

Very dedicated vounteers take you about.
