I am a history buff. This venue was both intelligent and fun. The staff were most helpful. There is a great deal of education value to be found here.

This was my second visit but the first one since the Second World War attraction opened, it really is a must to visit while you are in the region

This museum is very well done. It’s similar to the Peter Jackson Exhibit in Wellington at the world war one museum and Te Papa. Everything is excellently laid out and explained. In addition, there are people start to answer any questions that you have.

It took us 45 minutes to an hour to get around which I think is a little below average.

A memorable experience in a totally unexpected location. World class venue and not just a museum. Go there.

I cannot use too many praise words to describe this attraction. It has a truly unique collection of planes the likes of which I had not seen in other aviation museums. Their collection of WW1 planes was especially impressive. The dioramas were very well done and really took you back to the time and operational context of the aircraft. I was surprized to hear that most of the planes in the Centre were still flying! A true hidden gem of NZ.
