A must for boys of all ages. Norways biggest collection of aviation history in one place. Great also for families in stead of spening hours at the airport.

Museum is well structured so military/historical is on other civil aviation. There are some very nice planes i haven't seen other places from WW2 time. Also these historical stories of Norwegian own aviation landmarks are interesting. Civil aviation part was maybe not as interesting for me but some nice stuff is available. Also this "working" air traffic control tower was... More

A large collection of military and civilian airplanes in Norway through the ages. The museum is built around the old control tower of Bodø Airport. Parking is free for two hours and access is easy. The civilian side of the exhibition is centered on the different aviation enterprises of Norway, showcasing many different planes. In this side there is also... More

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.
