I've been to a few and apart from the very creme de la creme of tech museums like the US Naval Aviation Museum in Pensacola,this is one of the very best. Their collection of cold war MiG and Suchoi jets is stunning. They have a few very rare planes like the only jet-engined double-decker agri-plane. Sounds crazy? Sure it is... More

This museum may be difficult to find if you are making your way independently. But when you get there - wow what a wonderful surprise! So many aircraft to see - many of which are not readily accessible in western museums. Some of the gems are on display inside hangars around the site. Its a shame some of the other... More

Surprisingly close to the city center at around 5 Km or less, but a little difficult to find as address not clearly defined. Once located we were amazed at the collection of old aircraft spread through the new building, the various hangers, the open grassed area and even a few in need of some serious TLC in the carpark. We... More

Huge amount of aviation history located in a compact place. Definitely worth a half day visit. Some of the airplanes are real rarities.

My boyfriend works with planes so this place was his idea of heaven. Very cheap to get to in a taxi from the Main Market Square, and I actually thoroughly enjoyed it, even if he did have to explain things to me. We spent 3 hours there looking round everything, loads to see.

This museum is a hidden gem of Krakow, if you're interested in aircraft or in Poland's military history. It's a fair bit outside the city center, though easily reached by tramway - they have their own tramway stop, fairly new, I think. From the tramway, it's a short walk through a park to the museum. The collection is large and... More

We got the tram from town which took about 15minutes. The staff at the hostel told us which tram to get and where from. It was quite easy to follow the tram map and stops despite the language barrier and they are really frequent. As with most things I found it is not easily spotted from the main road and... More

One of the best war airplane collection in Europe, with war planes, war helicopters, civil planes, and a special engine collection. There are some halls about the war history between Warsaw Pact and NATO.
