About

Built in 1942 – 43 on the edge of RAF Langham, this intriguing building utilised innovative technology to train anti-aircraft gunners. This lovingly restored military museum was one of the first examples of virtual technology.

Long before digital virtual reality was invented, moving images projected onto the inside of the Dome taught brave trainees how to shoot down enemy aircraft successfully. More than seventy years after the end of World War 2, a visit to the Dome offers a unique opportunity to journey back in time and experience what life was like for those who served at RAF Langham.

Our lively displays and hands-on activities make Langham Dome a fantastic place to visit with the whole family. Be inspired by our story, and marvel at the ingenious way in which the Dome solved a perplexing problem in desperate times.

Langham Dome, a Scheduled Ancient Monument, is one of only a handful of anti-aircraft gunnery domes left in the UK.  In 2013, the North Norfolk Historic Buildings Trust, which owns Langham Dome, was awarded £446,400 by the Heritage Lottery Fund, together with £199,000 by English Heritage and a variety of other generous grants, to open the Langham Dome military museum as a visitor attraction. Our mission is to reveal the significance of the Dome and RAF Langham in the defence of Britain during and after World War II, and to remember the sacrifices made by service personnel.

We have ample free parking and a delightful picnic area under our wonderful full-size replica Spitfire. Lavazza hot drinks, cold drinks and snacks available during opening hours. . See www.langhamdome.org for more information.
