For Immediate Release
Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre Ranked #2 Museum in the Southern Hemisphere In TripAdvisors’ 2015 Travellers' Choice Award for Museums
Blenheim, Marlborough – Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre was named today by TripAdvisor, the world’s largest travel site, as the second ranked museum in the Southern Hemisphere in their annual Travellers’ Choice Awards 2015.
Award winners were determined using an algorithm that took into account the quantity and quality of reviews and ratings for hotels, restaurants and attractions in destinations worldwide, gathered over a 12-month period.
Jane Orphan, Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre director, said "I'm just thrilled that so many visitors have enjoyed their experience at the Omaka AHC so much, that they have been moved to want to tell others and to share the experience via TripAdvisor. They say that there's no better publicity than 'word of mouth' and here we see it to be true. This could not help but spur us on to bigger and better things as we work towards the opening of the new WW-II display in the middle of next year. There are certainly exciting times ahead".
About Omaka Aviation Heritage Centre
Omaka AHC was established to provide a world-class destination for the appreciation of historic aircraft. The “Knights of the Sky” exhibition is the world’s largest collection of World War 1 aircraft and rare memorabilia and is on long-term loan from film director Sir Peter Jackson. Thanks to Sir Peter’s generosity, the aircraft have been brought to life in a series of dioramas created by Wingnut Films and enhanced with lifelike mannequins by Weta Workshop. A second exhibition Dangerous Skies will tell the story of aviation development during World War 2 and is scheduled to open in June 2015.
