The Australian Aviation Heritage Centre is one of the major aviation museums in Australia. The Centre has an impressive presentation of aircraft and displays depicting the Territory’s involvement in aviation, both civil and military, from the early pioneers and record breakers through World War II and the jet age.The major display item is a massive B-52 bomber on permanent loan from the United States Air Force and is one of only two on public display in the world outside the USA.
The Centre is approximately 8 kilometers from the city and was opened in 1990 in a purpose built facility constructed by the Northern Territory Government and is the largest single span building in the Northern Territory.
The Centre is managed by the honorary members of the Aviation Historical Society and provides a major tourist attraction in the Top End of Australia. It is unique in that it is located where fierce air combat took place overhead during World War II. The Top End of Australia sustained over 60 Japanese air raids during 1942 and 1943.
An admission fee is charged as the Centre is self funding through admissions and sales from the Souvenir shop, however, discounts are offered to pensioners, children, families and groups. Guided tours are also available as part of the admission charge and aviation videos are screened continuously
