You can gain a unique insight to Australian aviation history, the Air Force and RAAF Base Point Cook by taking one of our guided tours. Guided tours are conducted by RAAF Museum staff and trained volunteer host officers.

Opening Hours:


Every Tuesday, Thursday and Sunday at 1pm, see one of our heritage aircraft in flight and learn about the process in close-up detail. This program enables visitors to see, hear and smell what flying is all about. Best of all, it is absolutely free! Bookings are not required. Note: Air displays may not occur in January.

Opening Hours and Tour Information

Cost:


Admission to the RAAF Museum is free. Donations are gratefully accepted.

Review:


This is a great destination for any family which likes planes. An acrobatic plane flies at certain times during the week. Make sure you coincide your visit to match one of these times. You can get fairly close to the plane and there is a question and answer session with the pilot.

There is also a Restoration Hangar where a De Havilland DH-98, made entirely of wood, is being restored. The display of various types of planes ranging from old to modern in the main museum is excellent. You can see air missiles, a mirage jet, helicopter, boat plane in addition to the standard planes. The staff are friendly, enthusiastic and informative. Entry is by donation and represents fantastic value.

Make sure you take identification with you so that you can get into the RAAF base.
