Interesting showcases on conflicts in which the Australian Royal Air Force participated. The museum is also interested in civil aviation through aircraft and exhibitions. The reception of the volunteers was great !!! For 40 dollars the family entrance it's definitely worth it. With boys about ten years old we stayed there for about two hours.
We had a wonderful visit the the museum. Thanks to Noel, our guide for an informative and interesting explanation of many of the old planes. more »
Have been a few times over the years and never disappointing. Only had an hour to kill while waiting for someone to pick me up and was happy to pay the $20. The F111, new since I'd last been, was worth that on its own. A great range in the collection and a treat for any aeroplane enthusiast.
The air museum was amazing very friendly staff and volunteers and the artifacts were just mind blowing. Such an awesome experience to see the history of our nation and the impact it had on people back then and the sacrifices they made for future generations.
