From Spitfire to B52 Bomber
Darwin Aviation Museum is home to impressive aircraft displays depicting the Territory's involvement in aviation, both civil and military. Located on 557 Stuart Highway Winnellie Darwin, only 8km from city centre, this museum is a must-see for all aircraft enthusiasts.

As you enter the display section of the museum, you will see a B52 Bomber, which takes up almost the whole hanger. I would suggest you not run to the B52 directly, but first sit and watch the short film exploring Darwin's roles in WWII and more.

The display also explores female aviation in Northern Territory, the history of Qantas, and also Australian aviation history in general.

The museum is in a large hanger. There is a nice air-conditioned shop where you can buy a drink and cool down. You can join their free guided tours which commence at 10am and 2pm.
