Not many places you can see a b52, f111,mirage and spitfire (replica) along with ultralights and a gyro copter. Worth a hour or two when in Darwin.

This is only one of two locations in the world that has a display of the B-52 outside of the US. The entire museum is a must for any aviation or history lover.

Stories of the aircrafts on display and the aviators. The B52 on display is the only one in Australia.

A fantastic place to visit, I had to be dragged out otherwise I'd still be there. The B52 is certainly amazing but there are some many other restored aircraft to see, if you like aviation heritage do not miss this place.

The Australian Aviation Heritage Centre is worth a visit for keen aviation followers and those with a general interest in aviation. The B52 bomber is huge and I found the other lanes and helicopters very interesting. A shame this attraction doesn't get more private or government funding as there is scope for significant upgrades with new aircraft and related equipment... More

I went along reluctantly with my husband. I was so surprised had how interesting and well presented it was. The volunteers do a fabulous job. What an amazing collection of equipment I really enjoyed it and I must admit it was not expecting to find it very interesting.

There is so much to see, a really good display or Australian, Japanese and American planes. There is also a full size B52 bomber that was donated by the USA. Take you camera, plenty to see and photograph.
