Opening Hours: 10.00-16.00 The Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia, the Bull Creek Collection, is owned and operated by the Western Australian Division of the RAAF Association. That building was sufficient to house most of the Museum's smaller aeroplanes but not the Lancaster and the recently acquired Douglas Dakota. The RAAF Association raised more money and constructed a new and larger building behind the first one to house these very large exhibits. It was opened on 17 December 1983. Since then further facilities have been added to the Museum and many more items have been donated to its collection.
The Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia has the full range of museum facilities. It has over three thousand square metres of floor display space and research, storage and workshop facilities. An impressive floor space of 1600 square metres houses the Museum's military aeroplanes including the Lancaster and Dakota. The display gallery houses displays commemorating the activities of Air Force personnel in Europe during World War II. Shop The Shop at the Museum has a wide range of material available for purchase including postcards, models, toys and aviation memorabilia. It also has a good selection of aviation books, many of them unavailable from normal retail outlets. Friends of the Museum A Friends group exists for those who are keen to support the Museum.
