About RAF Radar Museum Neatishead

Air Defence Radar Museum (ADRM)

Air defence radar operations began at RAF Neatishead in 1942 and continued until 2004 when RAF Neatishead ceased to house Radars and became Remote Radar Head (RRH) Neatishead. RRH Neatishead still supplies engineering support to the Air Defence radar at Trimingham as well as providing Ground-to-Air communications.

The Museum hosts over 1000 children a year with their Families. School Groups are also catered for and it is a pleasure telling the next generation about Radar. However, due to the layout of the Museum, it is not really suitable for Playgroup outings or other similar events involving large numbers of younger children without prior notification. If you would like to bring a group of children on an outing, do contact the Museum first so we can arrange a suitable programme for their visit ahead of time.

Opening Times

The Museum is staffed by Volunteers and is only open at certain times.

The Museum is open as follows:

Tuesdays, Thursdays and Bank Holiday Mondays, April to October inclusive.

We also open on the second Saturday of each month – all year round.

Opening times are from 1000-1700 (last entrance for guided tour is 1500).

Tour Times

The Guided Tours run every half hour from 1030 with the last Tour at 1500. The Tour lasts for 1 hr 30 minutes and is well worth joining as it puts the history of Air Defence into context at the very start of your visit.

Gift Aid

The Museum operates the Gift Aid scheme. You will be invited to complete a simple Gift Aid form when you enter the Museum.

This will entitle you to FREE re-entry to the Museum over the next 12 months. Please do consider the scheme as it is a great help!

An award winning, volunteer run, visitor attraction and Museum, it offers an enjoyable and informative day out to all visitors. Housed in the original Grade II* listed 1942 radar operations building, the Museum, in addition to the Exhibition spaces, offers the Visitor a wide range of facilities.

FACILITIES ON SITE

The RAF Air Defence Radar Museum is dedicated to preserving artefacts and information relating to the RAF Air Defence Radar Network at home and abroad. As part of this, the Museum holds a significant collection of artefacts, documents, photographs, films and sound recordings charting the history of the people and, the technology which combine to produce the Air Defence organisation. Not only do we aim to provide all our visitors with a fascinating insight into the world of Air Defence as they view our range of exhibits, we provide a valuable reference source for Researchers.

Due to the nature of research, particularly those involving more complex questions, this will inevitably mean that you either need to specify precisely your research question, or even visit the Museum to discuss the matter at an introductory meeting. Given the extensive nature of our Archives, it may be necessary for us to spend some time gathering the sources of information you will need to answer your question before you visit so you don’t waste time and effort. Often, we can bring in additional material to assist you as well! Once we have gathered the material together, we provide you with facilities to study our archive material.
