The RAAF Museum (or the Royal Australian Air Force Museum) is one of the most renowned air force museums in the world; located on the site of RAAF Williams Point Cook Base in Victoria.

The museum is known for its world-famous collections of iconic aircraft and an extensive range of displays and exhibits – from the oldest Australian Flying Corps to the present air force.

Back in 1952, this museum was formed by the Air Marshal Sir George Jones. As one of the largest museums in the country, the RAAF Museum is home to some of the most significant collections of aircraft and memorabilia in Australia.

This museum represents a rich history of Australian Air Force and its contribution in many national and international events.

A team of 18 experienced employees work full-time at this museum to manage its technical, research, curatorial and administration areas. In addition, a number of volunteers also participate and work for the museum and provide assistance with the day-to-day running of the RAFF.

The RAAF Museum also showcases excellent exhibits from World War I and II. For those interested in learning more about the participation of Australia in these two famous world wars, come for a visit.

    • Hi Latifah,

      I have looked at how you can get to there via public transport and there is really no way you can get all the way there with just trains and buses – you still need to use a car to get the last 5.5km from Point Cook South Terminus / Featherbrook Rd.

      The closest you can get via train is Williams Landing, but then you need to take either a combination of bus / taxi, as there is no bus stop nearby.

      You can view the different routes at https://www.rome2rio.com/map/Flinders-Street-Station/RAAF-Museum.

      I have looked into the “Werribee Park Shuttle” that’s mentioned on the official website, but at a cost of $35 per adult, $20 per child Under 10 and $25 per child between 10 to 14, you may as well just take a taxi, or take the train and then taxi the rest of the way.

      Hope this helps.
      Michael
