What people are saying:

The Aviation Museum of South Australia displays real samples from biplanes to space rockets, and you can experience the feeling of air force commanders. Activate the propeller of the Lincoln bomber, board the Dakota C 47, visit the classic Spitfire, etc. The rich exhibits fully interpret the aviation history of South Australia. There are many souvenirs to choose from in the museum shop, and the library has a large collection of precious materials. The museum has an engine start exhibition every three years, and the trembling of the Merlin engine and seven other star engines from World War I and World War II can be heard.

    Great little museum for the Aviation buff.

    Brilliant wee museum for the Aviation buff. A few exhibits roped off because of CoVid but no biggie. Incredibly helpful volunteer on the desk filled us in on the entire museum. Very helpful.

    Helpful volunteer staff

    Although some of the planes were roped off due to the coronavirus, we still enjoyed walking up the few that were still available. The museum is well laid out over two large buildings and the F111 was...
