It is worth it to see the size of B52 bomber - there is plenty of other memorabilia to view during the visit Unfortunately no cafe. Take the bus from town - Senior Card - free journey

Yes this is definitely worth a visit. Some of my family members who are a bit ambivalent about aviation thought this was a great attraction. The B52 stole the show, although WW2 wreckage of Japanese planes were very interesting also. More than happy to recommend.

Not just a great big hanger with real aircraft (a B-52!! along with the obligatory Spitfire and Tiger Moth, and plenty others), but really informative displays on Darwin's aviation history: the early trans-continental flights, the WW2 bombings, and how flight overcame the isolation.

Like all the museums in Darwin this is certainly worth a visit. Fantastic collection of planes including a B52. You need a couple of hours.
