We spent a couple of hours here. They have all sorts of aircraft, including F111. Lots of historical info. The volunteer staff are passionate about the place and very informative. Well worth a visit.

We visited the museum on very rainy wet day . The volunteers were very friendly and engaging. The variety of aircraft was impressive and surprisingly kept both my children engaged. We had a very interesting and enjoyable visit.

It was a damp day,so a good place to visit, as many of the planes are under cover. The volunteers were happy to talk about the displays. For what it is, a small affair in comparison to some, it's interesting and well worth a visit.More

Thanks for your review. I should point out, if you have visited larger aircraft or other museums elsewhere, they are all government supported. QAM is fully self-funded through visitor fees and occasional member contributions when a major acquisition is made. All restoration works are completed...More

The Museum is small but has heaps of aviation goodies that I have never seen in other museums. They are also restoring aircraft for return to active service. So much to see.
