The flight simulator was amazing, and even though I crashed my aeroplane it was a lovely family day out which was topped off with cakes and coffee!

Very nice small museum and friendly volunteers! My cousin surprised my husband with the flight simulation experience as a gift. He was quite thrilled. There are not a lot of things to do in the rural areas of Sweden and the museum is a nice local attraction.

Museum preserves the history of the old air force base at Söderhamn in great detail. Staff are very engaged and friendly. Also has an impressive flight simulator.

This museum is an ex-airbase F15 of Swedish air forces. Being at the outskirts of the town of Søderhamn it is better to be accessed by car (though there's definitely some public transport going there).

I strongly recommend a guiding tour (which is free but I'm not sure in it's availability in other language than Swedish). This place is run by some charity society meaning they are really enthusiastic about stuff.

Exhibition includes all the fighters and training planes in post-war history of Sweden except for the most recent generation. They also tell you about the way the base worked before - having a good guide it's really never boring.

Kids can enjoy the simulator cabin (they have two - simple and really advanced). However it's not that fun for smaller kids (whom we had with us) and that's in general the only reason making me degrading my general rating.

It might be not the reason to change you trip but if you are driving nearby (say taking E4 road) it'll worth a while.

The museum is slightly out of town so if you don't have a car you may need to investigate public transport. It consists of several rooms covering the history of the air base and one large hanger full of planes and further displays. Fighter aircraft from 1946 to 1997 are on display and whilst slightly crowded, makes for one of those 'discovery' museums as you walk through.
Well worth a visit if you are in the area!

Take some time and visit this farely small but very nice museum, showing Swedish air force planes from 1945 to 1998. There is something for every one, a play area for small children, a child flight simulator and a very nice "Viggen"- simulator for ages from 12- to old, as long as you can climb a ladder. It is an actual cockpit from a Viggen aeroplane with a 35 square meter canvas, wich make you feel like you are actally flying. Mind you, you have to book in advance. You can look around the museum on your own or ask for a guided tour. There is also a small cafe, coffe, tea and sodas. A variety of cookies and some ice cream as well. Hot dogs a toast or a hamburger, they can fix it. Pay with swish or money direct, or pay with card in the reception area.

We had a perfect day to do a museum tour. Rain and 12 grade varmt! But inside this museum is a great collection of Swedish (SAAB) aircraft's and their history, there is also a working Viggen Simulator that you have to book in advance but well worth the trip and the experience is fantastic!

Really good museum with a lot of things to see and a really awesome flight simulator. The staff is really friendly and nice and can tell you a lot about anything in the museum since most of them are old militarry employees.

Small but interesting. It has a flight simulator for Children and a real very popular simulator for adults. This simulator needs booking well in advance.
