The Fleet Air Arm Museum was very interesting especially if you have an interest in aviation. There was a great display of helicopters and naval planes as well as historical displays. The helicopter flight simulator would appeal to kids and parents. Well worth a visit, but be aware there was no cafe just vending machines.

World class presentation, great range of aircraft and related artifacts. A few hands on experiences such as the flight simulator. The cafe was a host of vending machines but im assuming the actual kitchen opens on certain days and times, it does have a commanding view of the airfield.

If interested in flying machines of the past and Australian naval air history this would be an interesting way to spend an hour or two. It's well presented and maintained with plenty of sitting spots for tired legs. There are a number of old planes and helicopters to see, along with models of ships, art exhibition and sundry memorabilia. Entry... More

We live in the area and often take our visitors here. They are always amazed. It is easy to access with a very modest $10 entry fee and never crowded. There is restoration work underway by local volunteers to add to the already impressive display.

Situated on the edge of Nowra naval air base, the museum presents the story of naval Aviation since early WW2. There is a balcony overlooking the air base. The café was recently closed, although vending machines remain.
