Fleet Air Arm Museum
The Royal Australian Navy invites you, your family and friend to visit the Fleet Air Arm Museum at HMAS Albatross Nowra. Explore and experience the story of Naval Aviation from its beginnings to the present day.
The Fleet Air Arm Museum consists of a large main facility, based on the design of an aircraft hangar, located within the heritage precinct at the entrance to HMAS Albatross. As well as the main aircraft exhibition Gallery and supporting galleries, there is also a museum souvenir and gift.
The “Wings over Water” exhibition tells the story of Naval Aviation in Australia, with aircraft from the 20th Century, ranging from a World War I Sopwith Pup to a Seahawk Helicopter. Showcases and Audiovisual displays add to the stories of these aircraft and those who flew and maintained them.
The Museums Flight Simulator provides a ‘virtual experience’ for all ages, on what it is like in the pilot’s seat. Throughout the exhibition and its interactive features, visitors can learn not just about Naval aircraft and hardware, but they can see and hear the stories of men and women who have served the Navy and Australia in the Fleet Air Arm.
The shop boasts a vast array of Navy and aviation related merchandise and mementos for sale.
