As well as the once top secret model of the Mohne Dam used in the early stages of developing the Dambusters' famous Bouncing Bomb, some of the larger test labs and the environmentally-friendly show homes of our Innovation Park will be open to view for free.
There will be talks and presentations repeated through the day about the role of BRE in the Dambusters raids, and also about the B17 Bomber 'Choo-z-suzy' that crashed on this site in 1943.
The largest structural test hall in Britain, our wind tunnel and (possibly) the quietest place in the UK will be open for tours and demonstrations. 'Bucknalls', the 19th century mansion at the centre of the site will be open to let visitors enjoy the oak panelled splendour of this former country house.
Cost: Free of Charge
