Unfortunately time limitations cut our visit short. The displays are fantastic with explanations in multiple languages. The layout allows a full view of the aircraft and supporting equipment. Dioramas are well done and located adjacent to the applicable aircraft. The civilian aviation side of the museum was closed for renovation limiting the experience. If you are in Bodo on a... More

This is a museum where you can spend quite a long time. Lots of explanations, informations, models, real airplanes, sets (they even show the log cabin Norwegian aviators used in Canada and a German plane having crashed in the mountains). Even if one wing was closed for refurbishment (it contains a U-2) theere was plenty to see.

This place is so well done and such a surprise for me to show my family from Paris, since i didnt know it either and grew up with plane and history in my home town Bodø. The civilian part was close to maintenance and we spent such a long time to explain the situation of evolution, atomic threats and war... More

Set in a typically Scandinavian building on a main bus route, this was a very well presented museum including a lookout tower. Only the military side was open when we visited but this was very good and one expects the civilian part to be as good. Quite a few hands on stuff for children. Staff really helpful.

Very good, but parts of the exibit is dated and old. I think they are doing a remodel This year. I hope it will be Even better! Close to the indoor waterpark, and the shopping area of City Nord, with lots of places to eat. Fun for the entire family.

It's an interesting museum although not a great number of exhibits. shame the civil side was closed at the time of my visit. You will still need to allow a couple of hours to have a good look round.

I was very excited about this museum-a customs officer at the airport mentioned it when I arrived in Oslo and told him my trip itinerary. (Unusual to have an actual conversation with a customs officer-figured this museum must be great if he cared to mention it). Anyway, admission costs 120NOK-more than any museum I went to in Oslo, Bergen, or... More

I'll admit to being an airplane nut (it comes with 30+ years of serving in the Air Force) but this small museum was really outstanding. I was initially disappointed that they're re-doing their civilian wing and it's closed, but the military side is good enough in itself. Well documented and explained in Norwegian, English, and German, it covers 200+ years... More
