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.

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.

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.

I was really pleased with what they had on display, though I wish much more of it could be indoors to prevent weathering. Never have I seen so much non-NATO aircraft in one location as well as some very rare German and Russian WWII aircraft. The clipped wing Spitfire is in wonderful condition inside. I spent close to 3 hours here, signs in both English and Polish. Worth the visit.

We were looking for something to fill a few hours and located here on TA. There is a massive array of planes to look at and a couple of simulators - we spent best part of 2hrs here and that was a bit of a whistle stop as non of us are huge aviation fans, so the real fan could spend much longer here looking and reading in details of all the craft. its easy to navigate and well laid out
