This one has to be on your bucket list if your into planes, also it is a good insight into what these pilots went through to not only fly some of these aircrafts but fit into a very small place. The B52 is the main...More

I am not an aviation fanatic so some of the attraction was lost on me. It was OK for a quick look around. I'm sure that people who are really into planes would love this.

We visited here 18 years ago but just had to go back. The F111 has now been added to this excellent exhibition. So much history, so well presented. You can learn so much that you never learnt at school. If you're in Darwin make sure...More

A real good place if you like aircraft so I left the wife at home and spent a happy couple of hours here. There’s a lot of stuff, with not much discernible organisation, so you get the home made Ultralight next to a Sabre jet...More

Good selection of planes. The B52 Bomber and replica spitfire were my favourites. There was heaps of information around & some great photos. Lots of good souvenirs to buy too. Recommend if you have any interest in aircraft or history.

This museum includes many planes that were in use in Australia during World War II and later. There is a huge B-52 bomber as well as smaller transport planes.

A great and very informative self guided museum very relevant to Darwin history. Not the easiest to get to and no cafeteria.

You would need to get a taxi. It is not walking distance. Cheers, Helen. Oh make sure you go to the underground tunnels which is near the harbour.
