Aircraft Hall Re-roofing

What is happening?

The upgrade of the air conditioning systems is nearing completion and the next planned work is the re-roofing of the Aircraft Hall at the south end of the Museum complex.

It has been 32 years since the Aircraft Hall had a new roof and this along with new insulation will improve airflow and temperature control. The work is being carried out by building company Watts and Hughes (W&H) who expect to finish the work June 2018.


How will it impact my visit?

The work has been planned to minimise disruption to the Museum and the local residents, though access to the Aircraft Hall will be restricted for safety reasons between 10am-12pm, Monday - Sunday from 20 April 2018.

Please be aware that there will be scaffolding in place, though clear signage will be around to direct you around the Aircraft Hall. 

You can visit the Aircraft Hall from 12pm - 5pm Monday - Sunday.


If you have any questions or concerns around the Museum works, please don’t hesitate to contact the project manager: Warwick Fergusson, (Ph) 021 2285344. Email
