IWM Duxford has reopened after storm damage forced the Cambridgeshire aviation museum to close over the weekend.
The tourist attraction across the county border is now open to visitors, with the exception of the AirSpace exhibition and the Visitor Centre.
An IWM Duxford spokeswoman said: “The damage to the roof of AirSpace has been assessed this morning (Monday) and we are fully aware of the roof’s condition.
“We are now working with the original building contractor to determine the necessary next steps to repair and make good the damage.”
Due to parts of the site being closed to visitors, ticket prices have been cut.
The spokeswoman added: “As we are not able to offer visitors the full IWM Duxford experience, we have reduced our admission prices to £12 for adults and £10 for seniors. Admission for children aged 15 and under is free.
“Our half-term family activities will be available from Tuesday, February 18.”
