"It’s not about medals.....but it’s nice to be remembered...that's all we ask, to be remembered."

Welcome to Biggin Hill Memorial Museum.

Following the recent Government announcement, the museum, St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance, the Memorial Garden and Nightingale Cafe will be closed from 5pm on Wednesday 4th November and we will reopen on Thursday 3rd December at 10am.

During this period of closure, we can provide Zoom talks to groups whilst the museum is closed. To find out more contact Katie – k.edwards@bhmm.org.uk

If you’re looking for something to do during lockdown, you can take part in our Flying High Challenge. Email our director Katie Edwards on k.edwards@bhmm.org.uk to get a free model plane, draw a design on it based on a real plane or create one of your own then make your own flying machine and see how far it will fly. Send us your pictures to win prizes for creativity and design. You can also access our Armchair Explorers activities here.

Whilst the site is closed, if you are aware of anyone who is experiencing isolation or loneliness, please do contact Katie – 07731301564
We can provide activity packs, care packages and conversation.
Keep safe everyone.

Here at Biggin Hill Memorial Museum we tell the story of Britain’s most famous fighter station through the personal experiences of those who served there, and the community that supported them.

The museum is situated on the same site as St George’s RAF Chapel of Remembrance, built in 1951 to preserve the legacy of those who served and died at Biggin Hill during the Second World War. The museum safeguards the future of this important building.
