Getting here and parking

The Air Force Museum of New Zealand is located in the suburb of Wigram in Christchurch, New Zealand, just a short 15 minute drive from either the CBD or the airport.

For driving directions to 45 Harvard Avenue, click here to view our location on Google Maps.

Plenty of free parking is available at the front of the Museum.


The 80, 100 and Yellowline buses travel down Main South or Springs Road. Get off when you see the orange and silver Harvard aircraft on a pole, then walk for 200m down Harvard Avenue. If you get off at the bus stop on Springs Road around the corner, walk down Henry Wigram Drive, past Wigram Base (former RNZAF Officers’ Mess), until you get to Harvard Avenue. The Museum is straight across the road. For more information about planning your journey to the Museum, head to the Metro Bus website or contact us directly.
