Outstanding!!

Being a modeller and an air enthusiast, this museum was in top position in my must list. It’s in the outskirts of Prague and preserves more than 200 airplanes, unique to my eyes. Air history in European skies before WWII and beyond is deployed right in front of you. IL-2 or IL-10, La fighters, I could not believe my eyes in getting so close to aircrafts that I knew from books and photographs. I enjoyed every single moment in this museum.

Outstanding museum
Oct 2019
If you like planes it is must to see. This is outstanding museum full of aviation history at at outskirts of Prague founded in 1968 and based in former areal of the first first base of former Czechoslovakia, now military airport. The great collection currently includes 275 planes some of them world wide unique or rare planes type. The museum is divided into the different sections such as Jet planes, Czech built aircraft dating from WW I, aviation of World War II, helicopters on. Due to the extensive collection new space would be desirable to be added.
It is unbelievable that this museum is for free. All the planes or showpieces are described in Czech and also English.

There is also detached part of tge museum close by (around 1 KM ) in hangars of Stara Aerovka / Aero factory

The museum is open in the summer season from May till October!!!. Small bistro and gift shop available.

To get to the museum take bus No. 185, 259, 280, 302, 375, 376 – 10 minutes from Letňany underground station to stop Letecké museum, just at the entrance to the museum. Parking about 300 meters from the museum.

Excellent free museum, but out of the way
Aug 2019
This is an excellent day trip for aviation enthusiasts. Although it is accessible by public transport, do prepare to spend some time getting there as it is a bit out of the way. Many Soviet-era aircraft are on display here, and there is also a gift shop that sells collectible patches. This museum also appears to be popular with families, there is a lot of space for the children to run around and explore.

Great spot for family walks and air enthusiasts!
Aug 2019
I visited Prague for a second time and this time I wanted to do something extra a little bit outside the crowded city centre.. so I decided to go to kbely air museum. The museum is located on an old airport with history that goes back to WWII and beyond, and the good thing is that you can go from city centre with metro (station Letnany with red line "C") and after that a 5-6 minutes bus or 20+ minute walk. The place is big enough for 3-4 hours tour and be sure to check the second part of the museum that is located 10-15 minutes walk opposite in a different spot (ask for a museum map to check it). Airplanes goes back from WWI till today, with almost every one that has served with Czech Air Force.. so if you are fan of Soviet-era Migs etc. this is a Mecca!

Well worth seeing

You can have a nice day out in the Kbely aviation museum. This place is still pretty pristine, with a few tourists who can appreciate the tranquillity.

Great collection of cold war aircraft
Jul 2019
Being an aviation enthusiast this place was a must for me when we visited Prague for a city break recently. Really easy to get to from central Prague. Take the C line metro to Letnany and then either wait for a bus or walk. We walked one way and took the bus the other. Walking takes about 25 mins.
So first the good. Its free. Some of the aircraft are a little run down but that all adds to the atmosphere and authenticity. Then the not so good. Part of the collection was closed off - no explanation as to why but that is where the bulk of the old Migs and Sukhois are. In the past this has been open so can only assume its a temporary thing. The main hangar is so full of aircraft that they are almost on top of each other so getting a decent uncluttered photograph is difficult - good to see the Phantom has been restored and is now inside though and of course I would rather see them out of the elements that rotting away outside but.......As a previous reviewer said a donation box would be a good idea.
There is an annex to the museum as well which isn't very well advertised. Its about a 10 minute walk on the other side of the road though a residential road. There are some lovely preserved aircraft down there as well.
On balance it is a great museum but a few things spoilt it for me. Having said that my wife enjoyed it even though she isn't really into aviation!
