About this activity
Go back in time to WWI on a surreal, carefully constructed set. View a carefully balanced exhibition of the stories of the Great War and its brave soldiers with the beauty of aviation

Aviation and history buffs will find the Omaka Aviation Heritage Center one of the most important tour locations to visit in Marlborough. Holding historical pieces, pristine replicas, and other vital artifacts from both World War I and World War II, the center carefully exhibits the stories that the soldiers had endured during the great wars and the aviation that had been used in them. Taking you back in time will be the spectacularly realistic sets created by the award-winning artists of Weta Workshop and WingNut Films, making sure your experience could be as authentic as possible in the Knights of the Sky exhibit. The realism of the sets immediately draws you back in to the harsh times of WWI and WWII, where soldiers faced extreme duress and could only rely upon each other and their equipment, particularly their aircraft. The focus on aviation will fully detail the value of aircraft during these wars, and the Center displays film directer Peter Jackson’s own personal collection of rare memorabilia and artifacts. This is a high educational and eye opening exhibit in Marlborough that shouldn’t be missed.
