100th Bomb Group Memorial Museum

Housed in the original airfield control tower and surrounding buildings the 100th Bomb Group memorial Museum is a moving testament to the Americans who came to Thorpe Abbotts in Norfolk to fight alongside the allies during WW2.

It tells a story common to East Anglia's airfields but is full of the personal stories of the men who were stationed at Thorpe Abbotts and how the bomb group came to be known as the "Bloody Hundredth". Since the 1970s this volunteer-run, fully Accredited museum, has been a star attraction in Norfolk.
