Had a great visit paid for the Wellington bomber tour ......which is one to one .....I was able to sit in the rear gunners position and the pilots seat..spent a lot of time in there.....the guide got a couple of questions wrong but was very informative.
A lot of the interactive displays were not working 😕 but there is a lot to see

My teenage som is very interested in planes. I booked the Lancaster tour for the pair of us and the enthusiasm of the guide meant that not only did he enjoy it, I did too. Very well done, friendly place full of passionate volunteers- highly recommend

Went to the museum today and was blown away by the quality of the exhibits.
Two of us went on the Lascaster tour.
Our guide was Paul and he enthusiastically told/showed us everything related to the Lancaster that they have on show - from history to operation to a very detailed look inside.
We were able to experience sitting in the rear gunners turret as well as all the other operational stations.
Huge thank you to Paul for making this such a wonderful experience.
After the tour I had the Bomber Command Virtual Experience.
This was so much more than I expected and gave a very real impression of what it was like to have been there.
All the staff we encountered went out of their way to make sure we had a good experience.
An excellent day out - highly recommended.

I took my young client who has severe autism and ADHD to this museum. We arrived at 3:15 (straight from school) and we were told that the museum “shut” and that we were not allowed to go in due to there not being enough time. This museum is advertised to be open until 4pm! My client became very distressed and upset due to him looking forward to the experience. We would’ve only stayed for max 30 minutes due to his ADHD. Very disappointing and misleading by advertising that it closed at 4pm. The man at the front desk was very rude and not understanding at all, saying that it is inconvenient for him. Horrible customer service and lack of insight about disabilities.

What a fantastic museum. We went for the personalised Lancaster tour. What an amazing experience being able to go inside and get some idea of what it was like for our father. The cramped conditions where they would have spent many hours doing their best fighting for the crown and country. Many of them being under age when they enlisted.
This was a maximum of two people tour We were greeted by warm friendly gentlemen, who were all extremely informative and knowledgeable. We heard all about the history of the the Lancaster and were lucky to be accompanied by an ammunition’s expert Paul.
After the tour which was more than 2 hours we had the VR Experience flying from the UK to Germany. Brilliant. David was extremely helpful and escorted us to the Dakota, what an aircraft. Hard to believe they had a hostess on these.
There is so much to see in this museum we didn’t have time to look at all the aircraft’s and information we will go back again.
Thank you so much for giving us the insight into how it was for all those heroic airmen.

This museum is outstanding. It is well laid out and the volunteers are knowledgeable and happy to share stories about the individual aircraft. The collection is well looked after and you can tell a lot of love and pride goes into making the museum as good as it is. If you are a history buff and are in WA do not miss this.

This is perhaps one of the best kept museum secrets in WA. There is an extraordinary range of aviation exhibits, presented very well and supported by a small army of dedicated, enthusiastic volunteers.
This is a must see location for everyone - adults & kids..... of all ages.
We take our 5 year old grandson & 4 year old grand daughter there 2+ times / year as they never tire of the displays....
