The Kent Battle of Britain Museum is located on the former RAF Hawkinge, a World War II airfield 4 miles inland from Folkestone, England. It is privately operated and is the oldest museum dedicated to the Battle of Britain. Since opening in 1971, the museum has gained the support of a number of Battle of Britain pilots - many of whom have donated personal items to the museum.

The museum is situated in the village of Hawkinge, only a short distance from Folkestone and is the most comprehensive and longest serving Battle of Britain Museum in the UK. It also features a shop where one can buy Battle of Britain memorabilia, including CDs and audio cassettes recorded and donated by Battle of Britain RAF pilots.
