Aviation Heritage Museum in Perth

Aviation Heritage Museum in Perth

The Aviation Heritage Museum of Western Australia, the Bull Creek Collection, is owned and operated by the Western Australian Division of the RAAFA. The beginnings of the museum date from early 1929 when the Association was formed.

The first project the new association engaged in was to acquire the Kalgoorlie Biplane. It set about restoring the aircraft with the view of entering it in the Centenary of Perth parade that same year. The wings were too wide for the road, so they were removed and placed next to the fuselage on the back of a truck for the parade.

The aeroplane was donated to the WA Museum after the parade but unfortunately does not survive today. In 1959 a Mark 22 Spitfire was acquired by the Association and restored in order to serve as the centrepiece for its commemorative activities, in front of the club house on Adelaide Terrace. A large library of aeroplane books and magazines was installed in the club house also.

Collect And Conserve
We collect, conserve and give a home to aeroplanes and other artefacts which make up Western Australia’s rich aviation heritage.
The Museum’s displays help to tell the story of our aviation history and heritage. School group tours available.
The Museum is the focus for many RAAFA commemoration activities with displays commemorating the achievements and sacrifice of Air Force personnel in war and peace.

The Aviation Heritage Museum is the perfect place to visit all year round.

The Museum is open every day of the week from 10.00am to 4.00pm (except Good Friday, Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Year’s Day).
