A lot of work is being done and should develop into a great and informative museum. It was a really hot day and we were disappointed that the shop wasn't open for any food or drinks, and almost no staff on board.

Very informative museum and child-friendly. They have helicopter simulator and our kids got crazy about it. You could easily spend like 2 hours there. They have a cafe on the 2nd floor with air field view and snack options if you're hungry.

An amazing display of aircraft and memorabilia that can be viewed from ground or an elevated walk way (tours available). There is an onsite cafe. The flight simulator can be used by children and is very popular. A large variety of goods to purchase in the gift shop. Great value for money.

Heaps to see, a must visit when they hold an air show. Great for big kids and little kids. Food in restaurant not a great menu and expensive. Went somewhere else to eat.

Great Family Museum for all ages to visit. The simulator as a great hit with the adults and kids. There are some fabulous exhibits. Close to Nowra great value and a great little cafe for a bite and coffee. Especially good if the weather comes in with rain.

Even if you are not a "reggie spotter", this Museum is worth a visit. As an ex military pilot, I found it fascinating and my wife also enjoyed the experience. The Museum is well laid out and the exhibits are easy to access with informative information. There is also the chance to sit in a helicopter "simulator"! The shop is... More

The museum is constantly improving and although not large by some standards, it gives a great snapshot of the role Naval aviation has played in Australia's defence. Having served at HMAS Albatross in the 1980s it's wonderful to see how far the museum has come since those tentative beginnings. The displays portraying the history of the RAN Helicopter Flight Vietnam... More

This aviation museum had fantastic exhibits with informative videos and written descriptions of the displays. The shop has heaps of momentos, clothing, videos etc for purchase. Well worth spending a few hours in.
