“A wonderful collection of World War 1 aeroplanes.”

The Vintage Aviator Museum
Ranked #7 of 21 things to do in Masterton
Attraction details
Reviewed March 8, 2014

The museum is open at weekends from 1000 to 1600, with hanger tours at 1100 and 1400. Often one of their stable will be flying. Twice a year there is a full scale flying display.
We took advantage of the hanger tour, led by Sarah, and we thoroughly recommend it. We were the only people on the tour, a fascinating insight into the manufacture and operations of these rare aircraft in The First World War. Some of the aircraft are original, others are exact replicas, engines and craft made from the original plans, using the original materials and techniques.
Whether you are aircraft enthusiasts, interested in the heritage of the period or just looking for something to do, this could be the best value NZ$ 15 in the country.
Probably not perfect for toddlers. You get very close to some very expensive kit, but it's more hands off than hands on.
