Accessing the collection


Members of the public are very welcome to access the research collection, by appointment, in our Reading Room. The reading room is a well-resourced space, consisting of a reference library of approximately 3,500 books and publications on military and New Zealand aviation, and is equipped with study tables, photocopier, television, video and DVD players, and a microfilm reader.

The Reading Room is open 10.30am to 3.00pm Monday-Friday.

Please contact us to make a time to visit, and let us know what you are researching, so we can identify and retrieve items from the archives and library that would be helpful for you to look at.
