This museum is not well publicized but it is worth the security checks that you are required to go through to get there. Once there the friendly and knowledgeable staff guide you around the various exhibits while adding background knowledge and anecdotes.

This is a true heritage centre and well worth the look. A greta collection of aircraft including helicopters. Fantastic history displays about the Amberley base also and how it served Australia. I highly recommend a viewing when Open but check on Opening Times.
