“Fascinating collection”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

If you have any interest in aviation, then this should be on your list of places to visit in Krakow. Before the fall of the iron curtain you wouldn’t have got anywhere near many of the aircraft on display here.
Highlights include a whole clutch of Soviet designed fighter aircraft from the cold war period, plus World War One veterans, and a Spitfire, a Junkers 52, a DC3 from the Second World War, and also a surprising number of aircraft from the NATO Pact countries.
Much of the display is outdoors, so choose a fine day. If you go on a Tuesday it’s free. Take a number 4 tram and get off at AWF, cross the road, walk back the way you have come and a sign indicates Muzeum Lotnictwa Polskiego up a quiet road on your right.

“Well Worth A Visit!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2013

The Polish Aviation Museum has a very large selection of Aircraft, so expect to spend a good few hours looking around.

The Receptionist was extremely helpful and kindly called a Taxi for us to take us back to our Hotel, and she was even reluctant to accept a tip!

One minor criticism is that there does not seem to be a Cafe on the premises, instead there are a couple of vending machines where you can purchase drinks and snacks.

We very much enjoyed our visit and would definitely recommend!

“A hidden gem.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2013

From historical museum perspective, terribly undersold. From lack of signage and narrow rutted access road, should be on major recommended visitor experience list. Room for improvement for visitor interpretation as some of the extraordinary history of some of these aircraft is hard to extract for example the Goering Collection not labeled or signed.
This collection if promoted could become one of the major aircraft exhibits in Europe. All in all a huge tick.

“Amazing aviation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

This modern museum is tucked away but accessible by tram with a ten minute walk from the closest station. It contains an enormous range indoors and outdoors of many kinds of aircraft. You need to allow at least two hours to view all on show.
