Helicopters and Aeroplanes in a hanger. Boring right? No way! This was one of the most educational and eye opening places I've been through in a while. It's definitely worth a look.

It's directly beside HMAS Albatross and full of so many cool things. The interactive displays and flight simulators are great also.

If you love anything military/navy this is the place for you. The kids loved the big planes and helicopters. The hangar is clean, tidy & modern. Adults $10, kids free. Most exhibits are static, however there is a helicopter simulator and a nose of a plane the kids can sit in.

The gift shop has a range of Navy branded clothing and souvenirs. Unfortunately the Cafe is closed so plan to find somewhere to eat before or after. I don't think this place is advertised well enough so there isn't the foot traffic to support the sublease of the cafe.

Overall this place is well worth the visit.

We decided to check out the Fleet Air Arm Museum as part of our Honeymoon road trip. The museum is fantastic, loved getting a look into history. There are plenty of information on all the planes on exhibit. The gift shop was great for presents for those back at home, especially a 10 year old family member who is very knowledgeable about aircraft and loved seeing our photos!

Terrific historical content, lots of old planes and their stories. Even the kids like looking around, there's a nice cafe upstairs, and plenty of outside space for kids to run around in.
