Brilliant museum. Easy tram ride from the centre or old town. Superb exhibits both early (unique) planes and a plethora of engines. My husband is a plane nut but I was able to be interested for several hours given his informed commentary (and years of practice).

A fascinating review of cold war and post cold war airplanes. It cost us circa £2.50 each entry fee and you are then left to wander around some fascinating old airplanes. Certainly one for the plane buffs!

This is off the beaten track which is a shame as this collection shows aviation advancement from the perspective of the other side of the Iron Curtain. There are so many Eastern Bloc aircraft here lined up in chronological order so that you can trace each planes lineage (so many MIG's). The signs are in Polish/English, what was interesting was the facts were so honest including the failures that occurred along the way. I agree that some of the exhibits are looking a little weather worn, they being outside but I found that aspect better instead of shiny planes looking like new. There are also helicopters here and some NATO planes including a Spitfire and Harrier Jump Jet as well as some anti aircraft hardware on show. Unfortunately the hangar where restoration is being carried out was closed to the public due to covid restrictions which was a shame. A nice collection and well worth a visit if you are interested in aviation history. You can spend from an hour and a half to 3 hours here easily.

My wife and I saw this place on the Discover Krakow website and decided to give it a try. Personally I am glad we did, in here is an amazing array of aircraft with everything from training jets to Helicopters. We spent a good three hours there and had a wonderful time wandering about. As most of the aircraft are outside it is a bit overgrown But my wife who has severe walking difficulties had no problems as there are benches scattered everywhere. Being overgrown just makes this place more authentic to me. There is also a quite large interior part where they have uniforms from the Polish pilots who fought with the R.A.F. Plus there are model aircraft on display and some simulators. Unfortunately due to the restrictions around Covid you cannot go inside the craft but this in no way diminished our enjoyment. If you have a few hours to spare go here even if you are not an aircraft enthusiast I'm am sure you will have a good time.

Not on the general list of advertised tours out of Krakow and after visiting I can see why.
Really it could be a little goldmine if managed well, the staff were less than pleasant a surprise after the welcoming, friendly Poles in Krakow. This needs some investment and customer service training, getting on the tour map would generate investment, as I have to agree with other reviewers the exhibits are looking a little worse for wear.
Great to see so many Cold War Soviet jets that you don’t often see in the U.K.
I asked where the messerschmit BF 109 was only to get no understan English gestures, so I asked in German, the guy rode off.
Could be great, will probably be shut down sooner rather than later.

It is one of the greates aviation museum in Poland, with really great exhibition collection. There are one main hangar with lots stuff (planes, helicopters), also smaller hangar for First World War exhibitions (really climatic), and big fields with bigger plane like "migs avenue"
It better to go in sunny day - becasue lots of planes are just standing on the field.
Only to some plane you can go inside (it was 3 or 4 as during my visit)

If you grew up in the 60's or 70's and before noses were glued to electronics, you more than likely made an airfix kit of one of these aircraft. I know I certainly did and spent many very happy hours doing so. It is a crying shame that they are exposed to the elements and slowly decaying. The mk XVI spit is outside with its canopy half open and is rotting. I nearly cried at the state of the Jag and Harrier.....never mind their old foes mig 21's and more.
however it is cool to get up close and peer into cockpits most of which are unusually fully intact including gunsights. The museum will regret not looking after these exhibits in time when they will be worth fortunes.

Fantastic museum, well worth a visit if you are in Krakow. Only about 15 minutes from the old town by tram and very reasonable entry fee. There are loads of aircraft, probably 2 to 3 time more than the average aircraft museum. It is mostly Polish built and/or operated aircraft of course but there are many from other nations as well. There are also some unique and very rare planes too.

As you enter you pass an indoor section with a fine display of the Spitfire and the 109 German fighter plane.
I love how these planes are both positioned.
Outside the park grounds are big with a mig collection and the famous Harrier Jet.
This is an ideal day out from all the other main attractions of Krakow.
Situated outside of the main city centre.

People reading this will assume I’m an idiot and they are right and wrong. I dont know what I was thinking going here, it was hot and all they have is planes. Duhh…its an aviation museum 😂 but I was hoping for some additional stuff such as videos, some interaction etc. if planes are your thing you will love it here
