So I managed to see everything and boy are there lots of Migs. More Migs than I have seen anywhere. Its not very well sign posted but... More

I wanted to do something different than watching only old architecture and as I am a big fan of discovering not very popular places, I took my friend's advice and visited this one. It's a little away from the city centre, but easy to reach by tram, wasn't crowded and I enjoyed it very much. Sometimes the places not mentioned... More

This was a total surprise for me. I generally like planes (like all men, I guess) but I couldn't imagine that an aviation museum would keep me occupied for several hours. And yet this happened. All the planes, the engines in the engine hall, the helicopters, the authentic clothes... They are great. Would definitely recommend.

This is a modern museum with static exhibits that are historic but not terrible exciting for average person. The main appeal for me is the mix of soviet aircraft on display outside and the artifacts from the cold war. I liked that they let you crawl into two of the planes.

Really good museum if you're like me and love aviation. Great on a rainy day. We took a cab from the center of town and it cost about $8.00 USD to get there. Cool historical displays of Polish aviation throughout the last century. A must see; but then again I do like airplanes.

Easy to get there by public transport. A short 5 min walk up the hill from the tram stop. Bitterly cold and snowing outside but a did a quick run through of the outside exhibits as well. Good balance between inside and outside exhibits. For those with a technical incline do not mis the hall with engines. Anything you can... More

The museum itself is on the outskirts of the city, we decided to take a taxi to get there which cost 45PLN, for the 15 minute journey or so. We arrived first thing, 9am, on a snowy morning so had the place to ourselves. Thought they have got the balance between indoor and outside exhibits about right, so we were... More

I really liked this as it has some aircraft which I really like, some being restored very well like the Roland WW1 German fighter. You can get close to the aircraft as well. If I am completely honest not sure I would take wife and family there - unless they really like aircraft! Take a look at the website of... More

I have been to about 5 museums in Europe and this is surely one of the best. Its exhibition mainly consists of Polish made planes during Cold War period and the Soviet ones. Apart from that they have a dozen of planes that were never a part of Polish Air Forces. If you love aviation you should surely visit this... More
