The Australian National Aviation Museum, is located at Moorabbin Airport near Melbourne Victoria and is recognised as Australia's only true National Aviation Museum. Owned and operated by the Australian Aircraft Restoration Group, a community based, not for profit Company, limited by Guarantee, the collection was established in 1962, and is the oldest volunteer Aviation Museum in Australia. Over the last 40 years, the museum has saved a number of significant examples of Australia's aviation heritage, and with over 50 aircraft on display, in storage or under restoration, the Museum is one of the largest in Australia.
