Online Shop Update
Like many businesses and institutions, the past few months COVID-19 has had a big effect on our Museum. As a not-for-profit organisation, we rely heavily on donations, and income from retail sales, corporate functions, etc, to continue to offer free admission and education programmes as well as access to our nationally-significant collection.
As we recover from the effects of weeks of closure, we need your help more than ever. One way you can support us and the work we do to preserve and share New Zealand’s military history, is by making a purchase from our Shop.
We are now posting orders Monday to Friday.
To make sure items purchased online from the Air Force Museum Shop arrive on time for the big day, see New Zealand Post's sending cut-off dates on their website: Christmas Sending Cut-off Dates.
