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.

Located adjacent to HMAS Albatross the Royal Australian Navy Air Station this is a perfect place to come and watch Navy aircraft fly around. The Air Base is most active during the week, so if you want to see flying aircraft plan your trip to suit.

There are large numbers of full sized aircraft on display, but you cannot touch or climb into them. As the museum is run by the Navy, they have plenty of access to aircraft including aircraft that have only just recently been retired.

There is no catering facility any more. But vending machines are available for drinks and snacks. The old canteen still has tables as chairs, so if you brought some of your own food you can still have a break and something to eat while overlooking the Navy Base. That said no food or drink is allowed in the main museum area.

There are a few art galleries inside focused on aviation and naval art. And a basic simulator to try and have a fly yourself.

Young children will enjoy themselves but older children might get bored if they are not into planes or museums.

Staff are friendly and helpful. They have a well stocked gift shop to remember your visit.

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
