The Historical Aircraft Restoration Society Aviation Museum has closed its doors to visitors for the foreseeable future due to the coronavirus pandemic.
HARS president Bob De La Hunty said the Albion Park Rail site, run by volunteers, had closed to the public at midday on Monday.
"We were looking at remaining open with all the precautions... But when the Prime Minister made his call for containment on Sunday night, we resolved that we would support that containment plea," he said.
"We decided to suspend operations at the museum.
"We had to close our cafe under those rules, and we took the opportunity to protect our visitors and all of our members, many of whom are in the vulnerable age group, and decided we'd support the community effort to contain this virus."
Mr De La Hunty said they were also concerned about the upcoming school holidays, a peak time for visitors to the museum.
"People pay to come into the museum... We fit into the entertainment type of category, so we'd have to close anyway."
Mr De La Hunty said essential maintenance and equipment servicing, based on the requirements of civil aviation authorities, would be ongoing to ensure the aircraft's engines were preserved.
"We're working up to have a security and maintenance team that are on-site to look after the aircraft... It will be done on a carefully controlled basis," he said.
