Love the History and the experience

Very welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Love how they have taken the time to restore the aircrafts and to maintain the history of Aviation. Super kid friendly and highly recommend!!!

Awesome school holiday trip

I brought my 3 boys here 12,9 and 3 and they really enjoyed it. We had a guided tour by one of the lovely men there who explained a lot of facts to the kids which they loved. Cafe is good , best vanilla milkshakes.

Great Museum to visit

The museum is full of great memorabilia and our son loves all the exhibits. We spend a few hours there and the food from the cafe is pretty good too, with plenty of options on the menu or from the cabinet for all to enjoy.x We always visit when we are down on holiday.

Awesome!

We really enjoyed our trip to the museum. There is currently one (1) interactive display that you can enter which shows the inside of a war plane. The other one is currently a work in progress and we can't wait to see it when we come back. Lots of aviation history in this one place which is definitely a must visit in Tauranga. The museum also has a cafe/restaurant where you can chill and eat before/after/in the middle of your visit which offers a nice selection of food and drinks.
