Mildenhall Museum galleries

Mildenhall Museum is fortunate to house varied and fascinating collections, from the skeleton of the Lakenheath Warrior (and his horse!) to our fascinating insight into the events at Mildenhall RAF airbase during the Second World War. From wartime uniforms to a butcher’s bike, the varied galleries capture the spirit of the town.
