The Australian Fleet Air Arm Museum, formerly known as Australia's Museum of Flight, is a military aerospace museum located at the naval air station HMAS Albatross, near Nowra, New South Wales.
$80m were raised from various sources for a large hangar and function centre, and in 1990, the Australian Naval Aviation Museum Foundation was established to operate the museum.
In 2000, the museum was renamed Australia's Museum of Flight and its role expanded to display other artefacts related to Australian aviation.
In 2006, ownership and management of the museum were handed to the Royal Australian Navy and it was renamed the Fleet Air Arm Museum.
The museum houses 34 aircraft and helicopters aircraft used throughout the history of the Fleet Air Arm, along with other aircraft of relevance to Australia's aviation history, and memorabilia relating to Australian aircraft carriers.
