"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.

Biggin Hill Memorial Museum is currently closed until further notice.

We look forward to welcoming you back when it is possible to do so.

In the meantime, you can also download free activity sheets, PowerPoints and craft instructions for young learners to explore at home. Find out more with our Armchair Explorers Activities here.

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.
