Owner description: Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present. It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum. Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum. Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum's science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator - like flying for real!

“Well Worth A Visit and Excellent Value”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This was my second visit to the museum, the first time being about ten years ago now. Several of the exhibits have changed many of the aircraft which were displayed outside the entrance have now gone. The only ones remaining are to the left of the main entrance, these being a Caravelle, Canberra, DC3 and Varsity. Parking is still opposite the museum and is free as is access to the restaurant inside the museum building. To see the inside exhibits the entry fee for an adult is 80kr which is very good value for money. You will also find a small shop inside too. A new exhibit here are the recovered remains of a swedish 'spy' DC3 which was shot down by a Russian mig over the Baltic in 1952. With the loss of all on board. It's an excellent display of the wreckage as it would have been in the sea bed before it was all recovered. Worth visiting just for this although there are many other rare aeroplanes displayed, many you will not find anywhere else. One of the better museums.

“A good place for everyone”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Interesting in general, it also has some play facilities for young peolple (flight simulators and others), so it's perfect fo families with children, but it's also good for adult if you have some time to spend in Linkoping, expecially if the wheater is not too good.
