Museum Precinct Expansion

We are most fortunate that Melbourne Water is undertaking a project to dismantle the larger World War II hangar at the far end of the Werribee airfield (Hangar 1), relocate it adjacent to our restoration hangar (Hangar 2) and refurbish Hangar 1 to contemporary building standards. It is likely that the refurbished hangar will be handed to us in late 2026 or early 2027. Once this has occurred, we shall relocate the B-24 Liberator in Hangar 1, where it will be showcased with much more space. Work on other aircraft - currently the Airspeed Oxford and Avro Anson - will continue in Hangar 2.
