Visit: Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, 79 Aerodrome Road, Blenheim 7272 New Zealand

The museum is open 7 days throughout the year with the exception of Christmas Day. Last entry is from 4pm and we close at 5pm. We recommend that you allow a minimum of 90-minutes to visit both exhibitions.
In December 2006 the opening exhibition, Knights of the Sky was ground breaking, not just in terms of the historical importance, rarity and scale of the collection but in the innovative way it was presented. The generosity of film director Sir Peter Jackson, the owner of the collection, was integral in bringing the exhibition to life in a series of dioramas utilizing the formidable creative talents of WingNut Films and enhanced by mannequins by Weta Workshop.
On the 1st of November 2016, the highly-anticipated unveiling of Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre’s second exhibition ‘Dangerous Skies’ took place. Utilizing the talents of both homegrown and internationally based experts the resulting displays have evolved yet again. Today the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, is a world-class destination for the appreciation of historic aircraft. Not just for enthusiasts, the centre tells the story of aviation during World Wars’ I & II, the time in which the most intense period of aviation development took place.

If in the atea you must do this museum. Even if you are not a fan of military museums you will still enjoy the diaramas and points of interests. Highly recommend.
