Whether or not you’re a history buff and like military memorabilia, the Australian Aviation Heritage Centre is not an attraction to miss. The most impressive exhibit there is the B- 52 Bomber aircraft, one of the two on public display outside of the United States of America. Others include a Japanese Zero shot down during the war and a retired RAAF F-111 fighter jet, etc. The Heritage Centre is one of the most historically pertinent museums of the Northern Territory. Apart from the plane exhibits, the museum talks of the Territory’s contribution towards the development of aviation in Australia.

Great experience. Always a favourite place to visit in Darwin. The sheer size of the B52 is one thing but the highlight is all the memorabilia and parts from old wrecks like the Japanese Zero that really capture your imagination. Getting to sit in the bomb bay of the B52 was a treat too!
Great collection of aeroplanes from all ages. A must see for anyone visiting Darwin. There is a little retail shop there as well. Very reasonable prices and great service! If you are aviation enthusiast, go and have a look. If you are not, still go and have a look!! You will enjoy it.
I liked it. A few aircraft from 30-ies to 90-ies that are well restored, a few "to do" projects and quite a few wrecks from local area WWII-era. For some reason I found the wrecks of Japanese aircraft most interesting - because I haven't seen that before. The signage could perhaps be improved (some factual errors, and a bit "dry".) But well worth a few hours if you are into military aviation.
Sorry I was in a hurry so I couldn't spend much time I enjoyed that which did peruse. I have at home a photo of my brother he was stationed at DARWIN during the war he was not permitted to go overseas due to severe Tinnea. However, I will send a copy up to your Museum You may be able to use it. He had been skinny dipping at the time, hence kneeling behind a dud bomb shell. Kind regards. Laurence Glen. PS. His name was ROBERT JAMES GLEN a private I believe.
Great museum, well worth the effort to get there if in the Darwin area. Many planes and exhibits from the time Australia was under attack during WW2. highlight was B52 bomber and the Mirage fighter bomber
