All reviews on display bomb bay tiger moth amazing collection stuart highway couple of hours worth a visit gift shop interesting exhibits great displays world war great place to visit few hours top end aircraft bomber hanger
Took a tour group off the cruise ship there. They loved it. For a small local museum it’s excellent. Some excellent exhibits and relics. Seeing a B52 bomber live dwarfing other exhibitions is amazing. Well done staff and volunteers.
This is an amazing experience. Standing in the hangar beside a massive B52 bomber and a Lancaster was incredible. There are also many planes, helicopters and other aviation exhibits, We were impressed with how well the visitors were looked after. It was a hot day...More
I was surprised at the number of aircraft on display, including the massive B52 bomber, Mirage, F111, Sabre and the American Cobra helicopter. Some of the exhibits have been magnificently restored. Would recommend to anyone with an interest in aviation history.
For those that are interested in flying machines a must. Also has a B52 bomber in the large 'shed' the displays are in. I found it very interesting But then again, I am into machines and stuff like this

This is a very unassuming venue from the outside, but once you step through the door expect to be blown away. The biggest feature in the hanger is the B52 bomber, the size of the machine is amazing. There is also a F1 11 on...More
Went to the Aviation Museum the other day, first time in a number of years. I had forgotten how interesting it was and the scope of items displayed. Enjoyed it again and am taking the grandkids in the next couple of weeks.

Hi Lorraine, I believe it's 9 to 5 every day except public holidays. My partner is a real "flyboy" so really wanted to visit here, but I also enjoyed it. Also it's run by volunteers, so it was nice to support their good work... More
