Excellent collection of Soviet block and western aircraft, most of the exhibits are outside and are deteriorating so don't delay a visit. The part of the exhibition under cover is well laid out and informative. The display of aero engines in one fo the hangars is the largest I have ever seen. All in all, a worthwhile visit for aircraft... More

Visited due to my boyfriend's interest in old planes, but found i really enjoyed the visit. A huge area with a variety of old planes. Really worth a visit for historical reasons and those attached to planes.

He just loved it. A lot of MIGs, the helicopter of the previous Pope, outdoor and indoor exhibitions, very old and new planes,... A lot to love about this place. Especially for grown and not grown men with a lot of interest in old wars and their aircrafts. A hidden gem. Tuesdays are Free! Definitely worth the visit and free... More

The site is very big with lots of outdoor space and several hangars displaying a large collection of planes, helicopters and gliders. Both military and civilian aircraft are on display. Your first entry to the site is through a new concrete and glass building with interesting architecture that contains a collection of hands on experiments for children and adults to... More

A collection of former Polish and other countries military aircraft with an area dedicated to aircraft engines, historic artefacts and an educational section with younger visitors in mind too. Easy access to and from the centre of Krakow via tram and reasonably priced. Pity there is no cafe there though, just a vending machine... Well worth a look when visiting... More

If you have the opportunity to go there, don't miss it! It is easy to walk around, the typical food is great and cheap.. There are several excursions to Nazis concentration fields - unforgettable experience.

Not difficult to get to, but well worth the visit if you're into aviation and heritage. It is an interesting, yet unusual collection as it has some rare airplanes plus looks a bit like a 'cold-war' graveyard that is fascinating to stroll through.

We spent three hours at this wonderful museum, where there are some unique examples of several types of Polish aircraft. Virtually all the really precious exhibits are under cover inside the hangars, and a tour takes you through the history of aviation in Poland. There are some stunning First World War exhibits, some lovely inter-war Polish designed and built light... More

The Polish Aviation Museum is a great place for an American aviation fan to visit. The collection of Warsaw Pact aircraft is excellent, far above what one will find at other museums anywhere. The majority are outside, which is a shame from a preservation standpoint. The museum is a short (15 min) and quite reasonable (25 PLN) taxi ride from... More
