Museum Hunts

What to do

We offer a range of Museum hunts suitable for 4–12 year olds, with regularly changing themes and challenges. A fun way for families to explore the Museum together!

Available from the Welcome Desk at any time.

Price: $6.00 including a fun prize.


Can you figure it out?



As part of the RNZAF’s 80th anniversary celebrations this year, our new Museum Hunt is based around some of the life-sized figures from our ’80 Years in 80 Stories’ exhibition.


“Head to Toe” (4+ years)

This Hunt will see children tracking down the life-sized figures standing around the Museum galleries. Work out which set of legs match up with the eight heads and write the correct letter in the white circle for each. When you have all the heads and legs matched, return to the Welcome Desk to receive your prize.


“Word to Date” (6+ years)

The challenge for this Hunt is to locate eight figures from the many standing around the Museum and find one word from the list provided in each figure’s coloured circle to write down. When you have finished you will have one word left on the list. Return to the Welcome Desk and tell us what that word is to receive your prize.


“Story to Tell” (8+ years)

Designed as a bit more of a challenge for older children, read the story on the figures around the Museum and match it up with the answers on the sheet provided.  Write the number from the correct figure and when you have all nine answers, return to the Welcome Desk to receive your prize.


Birthday Parties

At the Air Force Museum, we can offer your child a unique and exciting birthday party to remember.

Mosquito Mission Flight Simulator
