It was a damp day,so a good place to visit, as many of the planes are under cover. The volunteers were happy to talk about the displays. For what it is, a small affair in comparison to some, it's interesting and well worth a visit.More

QAM is fully self-funded through visitor fees and occasional member contributions when a major acquisition is made. All restoration works are completed...More

The Museum is small but has heaps of aviation goodies that I have never seen in other museums. They are also restoring aircraft for return to active service. So much to see.
