We visited the Fleet Museum yesterday. It was easy access for disabled with most exhibits being on ground floor. Only $10 to enter and we spent 2 hours reading and looking around. All about the navy aircraft, planes and helicopters with large range of them to see. Very interesting video on finding the HMS Sydney

A great way to get up close and personal with a slice of Aussie history. Been a few times when not crowded so no need to rush. Plenty of time to read and look at the displays. Make time for inside and out.

A great place to revisit Australian Defence history from aircraft to helicopters. Well presented through succinct descriptions of each aircraft's role and history.

We visited as a group of about 60 ex-navy personnel with spouses. When we joined the RAN in 1963 this museum did not exist. It is well laid out, with excellent exhibits providing accurate and interesting information. We were there for 2 hours and needed longer, with many of the group having to be hunted out to the Flight Deck... More

The Fleet Air Arm Museum is an interesting place showcasing the military history and might of the area with interactive displays, well laid out and interesting displays and exhibits, the helicopter simulator was a lot of fun and we spent a good 2 hours there going through everything. Add to that the runway outside where you can see takeoffs and... More

An aerospace museum with a wide range of aircrafts, helicopters and memorabilia relating to Australian aircraft carriers on display. You can easily spend 1-2 hours and afterwards relax at the upstairs cafe overlooking the runway (if your lucky you may even see some of the training cargo aircrafts & helicopters taking off and landing).

We were expecting our young kids (12, 10, 8 & 5) to be pretty bored but they didn't stop the whole time we were there. Plenty to see for adults and kids. The helicopter simulator was fantastic for the kids as well. Would definitely come back again in the future to look at it all again

A very well organised museum that is easy to navigate. An extensive and informative display of Australian military history and we were pleased to have visited.
