We went just before dusk, so had to use a flashlight for the outside display - so I'd suggest going around mid-day. The museum's extent of aircraft is fantastic - dating back to the start of the 20th C. Outside is the 50s - Present day aircraft plus helicopters. At the rear of the museum is an interactive room, where... More

You must visit this museum if you are an aviation fan. A bit out the center but in summer a 30 min walk of a 10 in cab drive. Most of the planes are located outside, many MIG fighters, helicopters, Sukoy etc . Inside the museum 2 jet engines on display and several Yaks. All very cool.

the museum is located few minutes by tram outside Krakow. It has a large display. There is also an interactive room where one can experiment with basic physics and science of planes

The aviation museum is 6 or 7 tram stations from city center, and it's absolutely worth of visit. After all historic places or churches, this will be a nice break. Planes and helicopters from different periods, pilot uniforms from cold war, ejection seats, anti radiation equipment and much more... If you like planes, this is a place for you.

There's plenty here to see and its all well described in English. If you are interested in this sort of thing you can spend a good hour or two browsing. Some of the outdoor aircraft have been neglected slightly but the indoor ones are obviously the pride and joy and are great to see.

Found this place on Tripadvisor and we went on a gloriously sunny day. MiG alley and plenty of interactive displays. We went into the Pope helicopter, too! We spent around a couple of hours here and it was well worth the tram out of the centre to come here.

We decided to visit the Aviation Museum in the afternoon on our last day in Krakow. The location is about 5 kms from City center - we went by car and found the site by GPS. The entrance fee we did not have to pay as we had a 3 days valid Krakow visit card which turned out to be... More

Came here on a cold day and thought that we would be done in about an hour. Was wrong, was so much to see and you could get really close to the exhibits. Even got to go inside the helicopter that was for pope John Paul I I !
