We offer a broad range of primary education programmes, all closely linked to and designed for the New Zealand School Curriculum.

Main curriculum links are displayed in each programme description, and our Education Officer, Chris Davey, is also happy to discuss other possibilities in order to meet your requirements. While some programmes are listed as being suitable for a wide range of year-levels, programme content can differ markedly depending on your group’s age, levels of prior knowledge and the specific learning outcomes required. All programme bookings can allow time for Museum exploration, and scavenger hunts and worksheets are provided.

Most of our education programmes are free of charge, except for certain specialised programmes, subject to the Education Officer’s review.

As the Air Force Museum is a registered charitable trust, koha (donations) are gladly accepted.


Air Force Clothing in World War Two and Now

This programme gives students the opportunity to examine and try on a range of Air Force clothing used in World War 2, then compare it to equipment used today.

Museum Visit

Discover our amazing displays, which offer insight into Air Force life during the World Wars through to the present day. Students will love exploring the Museum, full of amazing aircraft and personal stories.
