A must see for aviation enthusiasts. Quite pricey but worth it if this is your sphere of interest.

Very interesting museum with planes and artifacts from WWI. Musuem is very well made with life like dolls made from Peter Jackson's studio in Wellington.

Fan-bloody-tastic experience!!!! If you only do one attraction this year do this one. Excellent amazing display. Allow plenty of time, you'll still want more.

Wow, an amazing display - 10/10 for that. However, despite his age and life experience, there was absolutely no need for the gruff and rude attitude by the very elderly gentleman who was a member of staff. Perhaps if he had been more approachable we would have felt comfortable asking questions.

Ladies - this one is for you too. Incredible displays (Peter Jacksons Weka workshops took a hand) uniforms of infamous people (yes - and some planes. Ask for a torch so you can read all about the exhibits.

Magnificent! Can't praise it enough. Quality and quantity of World War One aircraft & memorabilia was amazing. I defy anyone not to find it of some interest.
