ABOUT OUR COLLECTION

The Air Force Museum of New Zealand holds the national collection of the Royal New Zealand Air Force (RNZAF).

The collection is very diverse and includes objects covering the early days of New Zealand military aviation both prior to World War One and during this major conflict; the interwar years which saw the formation of the RNZAF in 1937; New Zealanders who served with the Royal Air Force (RAF) and in other Allied air forces during World War Two; the RNZAF’s campaign in the Pacific, and the post-War period to the present day. The collection also includes objects from former enemy forces.

The collection is owned by the RNZAF Museum Trust Board and cared for by a full-time team of trained museum professionals.



Open daily from 9.30am to 4.30pm (except Christmas Day)
Entry to the Museum is free, donations are appreciated.
