Welcome to the Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre


Etrich Taube Dogfight

Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre presents the outstanding Knights of the Sky exhibition, featuring Sir Peter Jackson’s own collection of WW1 aircraft and artifacts. This story of aviation in the Great War is brought to life in sensational sets created by the internationally acclaimed talent of WingNut Films and Weta Workshop. The theatrical treatment is both innovative and visually stunning. Captivating scenes depict the aircraft in context, sometimes recreating an incident that actually happened in the war. Rare memorabilia is on display, worthy of any national collection and ranges from beautifully crafted ‘trench art’ through to personal items belonging to the famous Red Baron himself.

Scheduled guided tours operate twice daily at 10.30am and 2.00pm or enjoy the exhibition at your leisure.

Located in Marlborough just minutes from the centre of Blenheim we are open daily, (except for Christmas and Boxing Days) and promise an enthralling experience for all.

For ticket pricing please see our page Planning Your Visit.


Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre is rated as Marlborough's No.1 attraction on TripAdvisor.
