Thousands of item's of memorabilia and accessible photo albums showing the pictorial history of RAF Neatishead are on public display at The Royal Air Force Air Defence Radar Museum.
 
Forty airmen and airwomen were billeted at a local village and training began in this radical early warning system. After the war the station was established as a Sector Operations Centre and continued to be used until 1993, after the end of the Cold War.
 
In October 1994 the original operations building which housed the old equipment was converted into the Air Defence Radar Museum.
