We stopped by on our way through, and it was worth a look! We were virtually given a personal tour, and it was very very interesting. A must-see if you are an aviation/history buff

So much memorabilia about Reg Ansett and Ansett Airlines. A very worthwhile visit for anyone who is old enough to remember, even my wife who does not like museums enjoyed this visit.
