The research collection consists of two archives. The paper archive comprises personal collections, manuscripts and ephemera, logbooks, journals, technical drawings and publications, maps and a research library of over 3,500 books. The photographic archive comprises some one million negatives belonging to the NZDF negative collection, prints, photographic albums, film and sound objects. The Museum provides an enquiry service and reading room for members of the public wishing to obtain information about New Zealand military aviation from its beginnings to the modern-day RNZAF. However, the RNZAF’s official records are held by Archives New Zealand (www.archives.govt.nz) and personal service records are held by NZDF Archives (www.nzdf.mil.nz/personnel-records).
