A very good day out at the museum. Lots to read on the displays. A very interesting history of the New Zealand Air Force.
The only disappointment was the time taken to make two cups of coffee - the excuse being that the only person who could make coffee had to drop everything and talk to a potential customer. Please get your priorities right!

Took my 11 year old and my father in law. We all loved it, and found plenty to do and see.

Took the Airforce experience tour and got to see all the reserve exhibits. My son liked the kids activities, and loved the Mosquito Simulator.

Big new hall being built so it will double in size soon. Free entry, only pay for any tours and the simulator.

Superb

A good place to visit it you have children. We found the place by coincidence. A nice big hanger with lots of plance, a bit like the War Memorial Museum in Canberra.

Met by great staff as you enter. Wonderful displays which can fill in several hours if you take your time and take it all in. Recommended
