“Great Place to Visit on our NSW Road Trip”

Fleet Air Arm Museum
Ranked #2 of 24 things to do in Nowra
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 27 April 2018

We recently were staying in Nowra during the School Holidays and were on our way to Batemans Bay and had heard about the Fleet Air Museum. Our family 2 adults and 3 kids all enjoyed 2 hours at the museum looking at the exhibits. Adults are $10 and kids under 16 are free so a good budget attraction. The aircraft look good in the hangar and there are a few that allow the kids to sit in which makes it hands on. Unfortunately the helicopter flight simulator was out of order. Heaps of parking at the door, easy level access to the door. Definitely worth a visit - Recommended for families.

Took one of our grandchildren to the museum yesterday during school holidays. Great display of Naval history. Easy to walk around at a leisurely pace. I particularly liked the Victoria Cross art gallery exhibit commemorating many brave men. Museum is a short drive out of Nowra. Free parking close to entry. Toilet facilities. Good souvenir shop. There is a cafe dining area but it was closed when we were there around 12-1pm? Other than that thoroughly enjoyed it the exhibits

Loved everything about this museum. The collection, the building, the gift shop. We where there In February and there was only three other people in one group. I could have stayed longer but it was past lunchtime and my wife and I were hungry. What a shame they don't have a cafeteria!!

A short drive south of the town centre the museum is a well worth a look for big kids as well as younger kids.
There is plenty to see and it is worth taking the time to study the exhibits and read the information about them.
This is an all weather venue which could be reserved for a wet day activity or on any other day with plenty parking. A bonus is sometimes had as you can see directly on to the airfield which is operational and often flight training in helicopters is in progress. Some good photo opportunities can be had.

Loved everything in this museum. Amazing displays and so lovingly cared for. Only $10 entry for a couple of hours of enjoyment. The gift shop had some great things to buy too.
