Put together by passionate volunteers, which is great to see and commendable. Not very big but a great way to spend 2 hours. The F11 was the highlight.

The F111 is the centre piece of the display and is most impressive but the other exhibits combine to make the museum a must see. We had an escort who explained a number of exhibits and showed us the interiors of some of the bigger...More

An off the beaten destination for aviation enthusiasts. Only open Saturday and Sunday. Nominal entry fee. And the best part is... a well maintain Aardvark with informative displays and nostalgic photos. The curators charge for a photo in the cockpit. Other exhibits include a MIG-15UTI...More

the visit was great, up close to all planes but more so the F1-11 looking into the cockpit, seeing all the gauges and then the guide giving a detailed description on the workings of the craft.

We were fortunate enough to be visiting Evans during the Great Eastern Fly-In which is held at the Aerodrome every January. It was such an interesting day! So many aircraft to see and the aerial displays were fabulous. The whole family enjoyed the Heritage Museum,...More

We we're passing through town and I saw signs for an F-111 museum, so thought I'd go check it out. We were surprised to find them open even on Easter Monday holiday. It was really one of the coolest military exhibits I've been to as...More
