Located adjacent to HMAS Albatross the Royal Australian Navy Air Station this is a perfect place to come and watch Navy aircraft fly around.

4 adults 2 children aged 2 and 6 years, interesting displays not much for the younger ones to do but they could sit in a cockpit and on a simulator, so they didn't get too bored, an interesting couple of hours, kids under 16 go free, adults 10 dollars

I love aircraft, and I love the fact this is on a Military base that is still in use and serving. There is a vast array of aircraft in the museum and you can see helicopters and planes land and take off fairly regularly

We enjoyed the experience very much. The planes and displays are well set up. The personal stories bring it close and the size of the museum is just right. We were looking forward to the much advertised cafe but it is closed until further notice.

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.
