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

This museum has a surprisingly good collection, much better than I had expected. Many aviation museums in other countries cannot boast having half as much. As the civil aviation display was closed, we visited the military section only. We were lucky to see some very rare gems indeed, including a De Havilland Mosquito, Supermarine Spitfire, both in RAF colours, a... More

The Norwegian Aviation Museum currently houses an interesting collection of old military planes and a lot of WWII history. We found it interesting. WWII was long before my time, but US history about the war is very different from the history of an occupied country. If you are into old planes or WWII history, you should add a star. They... More

This museum is divided into a civilian and a military section. The civilian section is under renovation, so you can't visit that part. If you are interested in seeing the U-2, for some reason it is in the civilian section, so check to see if it is open before you go. We did enjoy the rest of the museum. Bodo... More

The museum has a civilian half and a military half. They are both excellent. There are a few hands on activities for children to teach them the fundamentals of aviation - lift, drag, etc. There is information about the US spy plane that crashed in Russia decades ago, and other not-well-known bits to take away. There is a control tower,... More
