The first thing you should know before you visit the Aviation Museum is Australia’s deep love for aircrafts and how it’s an important part of their history. Based around Alice Springs’ original aerodrome tarmac, the original hangar and the Connellan family (EJ Connellan is the pioneer of aviation in the Northern Territory) property is still a part of the premises. The museum tracks the history of aviation through Central Australia and the Northern Territories; the exhibits include a Royal Flying Doctor Service Drover Aircraft, Wackett trainer aircraft, Dove twin engine aircraft, DC3, Derwent jet engine, Rolls Royce Merlin engine and an Australian built Kookaburra glider along with plenty of photos and memorabilia.

  • Activities for the kids were quite impressive. Arts n crafts table was a winner, as it was free, as was the flight simulator. The kids loved being able to sit in an aircraft with black & white footage about Connellan. Entry should be by gold coin donation.

  • It was good, I found it a bit boring, no hands on things, just lots of things to look at. There is a cool kids plane they can ride in.

  • Lots of historic displays, well worth the stop. (Free too! Pop a donation in the box though!)

  • Lots of displays of historic aircraft. Very interesting spot.

  • Very good museum, lovely knowledgeable gentlemen, interactive exhibits really great
