Well worth a visit at the small airport just outside Trento. The museum us based on local pioneer Gianni Caproni who built planes here starting before the First World War. There are about 20 planes, plus many many models and other informative material. There is information on tge planes in Italian and English. There are also two free flight simulators for kids, which mine really enjoyed, with a very friendly lady to explain their use. One of them is based on the planes used on D'Annunzio's 1918 famed propaganda-dropping air raid on Vienna, with one of the actual planes that flew the mission beside it. In the galary there is an exhibition area which when we were there was a series of photos and a film regarding women and space. The museum kept my two kids interested for about two hours. There are two drawing areas for smaller kids to draw a plane. The collection includes a 1912 Bristol, which is apparently one of the oldest surviving British aircraft (see attached photo). There is a bar/restaurant next door. If you've been to Muse, the museum of science and natural history in Trento, keep the ticket and you get a reduced price on the already low entrance fee here - I paid € 3 for one adult and two kids!

An interesting stop on our way to Dolomite, apparently the oldest collection in the world, watch out the old "baffone" at the entrance, he is there to make sure your kids dont touch anything:-) easy to find, For us, less than one hour was just enough, we loved it

My inspiration for this visit was two Hiyao Miyazaki films; Porco Rosso, which celebrates Italian aircraft design, and When the Wind Rises, a film about aircraft design in which Count Caproni appears. The museum is small but full of interesting exhu it's including a flight simulator built into a historic aircraft, and some of Caproni's ow beautiful plans and drawings, not much in English.
