Expensive but very interesting and well done. We spent a rainy afternoon here checking out both of the exhibitions. They are in 2 separate buildings to you might get a bit wet if you don't have jackets and/or an umbrella.
It cost $39 each to see both the WW1 and WW2 areas. The WW1 area is bigger and has more stuff in it. If you take your time to read all the info as we did it took about 3.5 hours to make it through both. It was warm inside the buildings and this was on a rainy day so be prepared. I had to take off a layer. We brought our own food and drinks that we ate on the lobby area to save a bit of cash. You are not allowed to take food and drink inside the exhibitions.

Stunning exhibits! My partner is a total airplane nut so he loved it! I work building sets in the film industry and I just marveled at the incredible and realistic displays.

The aircraft are wonderfully displayed. This is a top-notch museum. Well worth a visit. Plus a good cafe.

Awesome showcase of aviation history through WW1 to WW2. Alot of the planes are in running condition and come out for Easter air show, which is also a must see.

I really enjoyed seeing the broad range of stories from both WWI and WE I I and both sides of the coin. They have a great range of planes (many reproduction models, beautifully made) and have done research into the lives of the pilots and tell their stories too, showing a huge variety of artefacts too.
