A very comprehensive museum split into Civilian and Military sections. A great way to pass a few hours, particularly if the weather is bad.

This aviation museum is only a very short bus ride from the dock. You could probably walk it comfortably if you have the time. The museum itself is split into 2 areas. You enter the building at about the center. If you turn right you go to the area for civilian aviation and the early history of flight. If you... More

We visited this fantastic museum and it was well worth the 17 hour train trip to the top of Norway. The aircraft display was well set out with a large amount of original aircraft including a wreck from the World War II German aircraft in the same sate it was located in. Some of the information could have been set... More

Even if you are not in to planes you would fint this interesting. Lots of history, especially in the military part. Clean and tidy and just the right size for a couple of hours visit. Great alternative for a rainy day. Small souvenir shop and nice cafeteria too.

We visited the museum as part of a extended family trip in February. Our party consisted of people of ages from two to sixty. Everyone found something to enjoy in the exhibitions and/or the activities.

The museum is split in two. The military section has a cold-war focus. Naturally enough as Bodø was where the U2 with Powers was heading for in the mid-60s. They have a real U2, but it is in the civilian section as it had a civilian registry. I liked all of it.

Bodo is fairly remote in Northern Norway, so it was a surprise to find quite such a comprehensive - and excellent - museum here. Both the civil and military sides were fascinating and very informative. From meteorology, polar navigation and air traffic control, to the effect of the Second World War and Norway's role in the Cold War, everything is... More

I enjoyed this attraction very much. I found the civilian aviation part the better compared to the military, where they have a very informative display of civil aviation in Norway. Don't forget to go up into the old control tower, definitely the place to take the load off your feet and enjoy the view if you feel the need to... More

I enjoyed this museum a lot, yes I'm a long time aviator but this place can be your mental home of aviaton big time in any needs. This museum has a special atmosphere in little details and overall timeline of history. This museum is divided in two main sections... Military aviation and Civil aviation, both in own spacious halls. It's... More
