Bawdsey Radar Museum has reopened.

You can visit the museum on Thursdays and Sundays plus Bank Holiday Mondays from 11am until 4pm (last entry at 3pm).

Pre-booking is no longer essential, however, if you book your tickets in advance it will save having to queue.

Adults £8.00

Childrens entry is free and they can enjoy the “Spy Trail.”

Radar was referred to as providing “the eyes of the few”, playing a vital role in supporting the fighter pilots during the intense days of the Battle of Britain and throughout the war. The radar museum, located in the 1939 Radar Transmitter Block, tells the story of a “world first” in the development of radar, and was recognised as Suffolk’s Small Museum of the Year in 2019.

While you are visiting the museum, you will see images of the Chain Home radar towers that stood 360ft tall at Bawdsey, and the WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force) radar operators who played such a crucial role in receiving and reporting the information back to Fighter Command.

The museum pays homage to the women and men who worked on radar during the Second World War.

You can buy unique radar-related gifts from the award-winning museum shop.
