The Museum Gift Shop
No trip to the Classic Flyers Museum is complete without a visit to our Museum Gift Shop. We are located at the
entrance to the museum (access is through the AvGas Café). The Museum Gift Shop is open 9.00am to 4.00pm 7 Days a week.
The Museum Gift Shop plays a fundamental role in supporting Classic Flyers operation by selling museum entry
tickets. We also take bookings for Adventure Flights
in our Classic Aircraft as well as Glider Flights on behalf of the local Tauranga Glider Club and in the summer period scenic flights in a DC-3 airliner.
Gifts & Souvenirs
The Classic Flyers museum Gift Shop gives you the opportunity to take a memory of your visit home with you. We have a great selection of aviation-related gifts and souvenirs. There is a comprehensive range of toys, books, models, clothing, DVD’s, posters and art prints, and collectables and more to choose from. We have something for every aviation enthusiast - young and old.
Aviation Heritage Support and Volunteers
Every purchase that you make goes into supporting the museum and the care and maintenance of the exhibits in it. If you want to be a part of the Classic Flyers team as a Volunteer then talk to us in the Gift Shop, we would love to have your support.
School Visits Bookings
The museum is committed to helping our children learn about aviation. Teachers are invited to contact us to discuss booking in school trips to the museum. We cater for children from Preschool up to Intermediate. We can also provide references material and access to our resources that will support the NZ Education Curriculum around Aviation. For more information or to make a school trip booking, talk to us in the Gift Shop or refer to the Museum Education
page of our website for more information.
Children's Birthday Party Bookings
In keeping with the idea of making Aviation Fun we also offer Children’s Birthday Parties in the museum. Bookings for these very popular parties are essential can be made in the Gift Shop or directly on-line on the Children’s Party Page
of our website (but ring us to confirm availability of your date).
Donation of Memorabilia for Archiving
If you have a family member or friend that has passed away or someone who is downsizing their home and does not know what to do with their collection of aviation books, models or other memorabilia we offer the facility of
accepting these items as donations to the museum for archiving (and possible display). So if you want to find a good home for your aviation collection, call in to see us in the Gift Shop.
