Overview

Our Philosophy: Aircraft are not for show, they are meant to be touched. The museum is open to all, whether you are new to aviation or not. All who want to help out have their place as a Museum Friend. We want to make aviation approachable to everyone. We are one of the few museums worldwide that allow free entry to its aircraft cockpits on demand. Flying today has become so routine that we sometimes forget the magic that is rising into the air like a bird, and soaring through the sky. So we want to show you all aspects of aviation in an approachable way; so that you feel completely at home. Our aircraft are restored selflessly by our volunteers: we gladly open their doors for you, because we believe sitting at a pilot's seat is an enriching experience.

I spent a morning wandering round this place with a Plane Spotter who wanted to see the museum and spot and it is a great location for plane spotting, or just watching the Aircraft. There is really a little bit of everything Aeronautical in the...More

Airports by nature, often suck but I really like Malaga. Very open, very friendly, and a good amount of features. The security was a little long but they did a good job getting everyone through. Overall a great airport.

The last time we visited this airport it was in 1998. They have since extended it and made it a lot bigger. It is now a lovely airy airport, and it was a pleasure to use it.
