Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre reviews
I decided we needed somewhere else to go rather than drinking wine all day. The displays were well done and the 2 displays were very informative. The video presentation at the end of the WW2 exhibit..... more »
Enjoyed our time visiting here amazing displays and plenty of information worth a visit if you are in Blenheim area. more »
That was so cool! I'm not even into planes or war, but it was fascinating. The thing that brought it all for me were the stories if individuals. Wonderful experience:)
This was great. Cost $25 for entry to one exhibit so not cheap bit great staff, planes were awesome to see, lots of information displayed creatively. Worth going in my view if you are okay with the price.
