The Romney Marsh Wartime Collection is housed in a former Women’s Land Army hostel built in 1942. It is located adjacent to the site of the former Brenzett (Ivychurch) Advanced Landing Ground , built in 1943 and operational from September 1943 until December 1944.
Although the Museum’s core exhibits are based around recovered aircraft artefacts from many digs carried out in the 1960s and 70s the exhibits now include The Womens Land Army, Civil Defence and the ‘Home Front’, World War I, The Battle of Britain, The Ghurkas, Bomb Disposal, PipeLine Under The Ocean (PLUTO), a German corner, an American section and many photographs.
Many of the artefacts are on open display enabling visitors to get ‘up close and personal’ with the historic items. Staff on site are able to answer any questions and bring to life the way life was in times of conflict. Most of the artefacts/displays are inside but their are some larger items including aircraft outside.
There is on site parking and toilet facilities. A cafe is now also available in the Museum. Most of the Museum is wheelchair accessible.
