|R.A.F. Henlow History
This Museum attempts to tell the story of RAF Signals. It is hoped visitors and signallers past, present and future can see something of the heritage upon which the Museum specialisation has been built. Whichever category you, the visitor fall into, we hope you will find your visit both interesting and informative. We have a lot of working equipment which we can demonstrate including transmitters, recievers and radar consoles.
Visiting the Museum
The Museum is open to the public on the first Saturday of each month (except January). For a visit on this day, there is no need to book in advance. To get a free entry pass, visitors must call at the Guardroom opposite the Visitor Car Park, and show a suitable photo identity document (a passport, driving licence or an over 60s bus pass). Opening times are 10:00 to 16:00. Advance booking is still required for visits at other times. (see below)
Visitors may call 07778837263 on the day before visiting if information is needed.
Post Code for Sat. Nav: SG16 6DN
Visitors must bring Official photo ID for booking in at the Guardroom for all visits.
A Passport, Photo Driving Licence or an over 60's Bus Pass is acceptable.
Parties and Groups
The Museum is also open to Groups and Societies by booking a visit in advance by emailing the Curator at Curator@SignalsMuseum.uk. Visits can be accommodated at most times by this arrangement. For local visitors, the Museum is normally open on a Tuesday afternoon as this is the Museum Staff working day, however, visitors wanting to come at this time, must still email the Curator to book.
The 3 Radar Consoles, the T1509 and the BC640 transmitter
We have seating among the exhibits.
We have now been set a closure date by the authorities at RAF Henlow. This will currently be by the end of June 2024 but we will close for visitors after the May 2024 Open Day, and start to dispose of our exhibits. Photographs of our exhibits in 2019 can be seen here (some of these have now been returned to their owners).
