This place was way better than I thought it would be. I was surprised how much stuff they had there and the wonderful work they have done to restore things. It seems they are always adding to their exhibits and displays.

This Museum has a great selection of RNZAF jet aircraft around. The only jet trainer they do not have is a Strikemaster trainer.

This is an interesting museum in a rural town that has a collection of military and commercial aircraft. Visitors are free to wander amongst the aircraft and look into the cockpits of most of the exhibits. The Harrier jet is an excellent exhibit, we do...More

Visited on impulse due to inclement weather preventing us from doing what we had originally planned in Ashburton. Warm greeting on arrival and paid the $10 each admission which was very reasonable. There are several aircraft on display, with their stories displayed beside each one....More
