The excellent Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre, 5km south of Blenheim, is home to a large collection of rare aircraft.

The museum is split into two main exhibition galleries: Knights of the Sky, which focuses on aviation during The Great War (WWI) and Dangerous Skies, which focuses on aviation during the Second World War.

The Knights of the Sky exhibition features aircraft from the personal collection of film director Sir Peter Jackson as well as an excellent series of dioramas and Dangerous Skies features interactive exhibits that utilise CGI and laser projection. Both exhibitions feature mannequins from Weta Workshop.
