IM­PE­RIAL WAR MU­SEUM

Business Traveller - - WHERE TO HEAT -

This 100-year-old mu­seum has per­ma­nent ex­hi­bi­tions on the First and Sec­ond World Wars, as well as tem­po­rary themed col­lec­tions cov­er­ing the likes of Bri­tain’s role in the war in Afghanistan. To com­mem­o­rate the mu­seum’s cen­te­nary this year, a new art in­stal­la­tion uses sound and light to tell the story of Dux­ford Royal Air Force sta­tion.

The mu­seum’s hy­per-mod­ern Atrium, de­signed by Fos­ter and Part­ners, forms the heart of the build­ing and can be booked for ban­quets of up to 270 peo­ple. The 25-me­tre-high space is com­plete with a dra­mat­i­cally sus­pended Spit­fire fighter plane, a huge Har­rier jet and a Ger­man V2 rocket. There are also two re­freshed board­rooms, a 200-seat cinema, and a roof ter­race cov­ered with vaulted glass, un­der which 240 del­e­gates can min­gle with drinks. Pey­ton Events pro­vides cater­ing.
