The exhibits are in the main in a fairly poor condition, but that is because (in the main) they are located outside in all the extreme weather. However you will see a good collection of eastern block fighters and bombers and others, that you will be familiar with from Airfix kits and old RAF propaganda films! The indoor displays are...

A short tram journey from old town. The outdoor displays include an impressive collection of MiG / Su fighters and more soviet planes and helicopters. Also have some western and american jets and some WWII warplanes (Me-109 and Spitfire)

We visited this museum after reading a lot of good reviews. And we were right! First, on Tuesdays the entrance is free. So, you can save some money if you choose this day. Then, there are really a huge amount of things to see! Planes from their first models to modern aircrafts, helicopters, missiles, and many more! Kids liked a... More

Lot of planes on relatively small yard. But a lot of them are modifications of MiG 21 and some similar planes and I missed some informations about them too. But we spend nearly 2 hours there so I think it is a good choice for afternoon trip.

Situated on the outskirts of Krakow, the museum was a £5 taxi ride away from our hotel on the opposite side of the city. It can also be reached by tram if you want to rise to the challenge of working their transport system out, which I am sure is easy. We went when it was snowing so chose our... More

Being ex RAF, this place was of great interest, looking at all the cold war aircraft we were up against. There is also a spitfire, hurricane and messerscmit. Spent a good 5 hours here.

An excellent place to go for aviation fans. They present an abundance of mainly soviet and Russian aircraft, which are certainly unusual to see in western places. There are also some western planes. Parts of the exhibition are thematic, for example comparing NATO to the USSR. The greatest part of the exhibition are planes and helicopters standing outdoors, making the... More

First impression is "Wow, so many planes". But then you realize that you have 10+ modification of Mig XX or similar plane. Information and description is hard to read. Engines section is really dark and you could easily make a horror movie in this hangar. Staff is friendly and helped me with all of my requests. This is the biggest... More

Now if you buy a Krakow Card with public transport entry is included in the price. From the Barbican get the no 4 tram on the side closest the old town & get off at the stop shown as muzeum lotnictwa (aviation museum). You are then a short walk through to the museum which has an impressive collection of aircraft... More

The space of former Krakow-Rakowice-Czyzyny Airport was where the Polish Aviation Museum was opened back in 1964. Quite undeservedly forgotten by many visitors to Krakow, this suberb museum is a real must-see for everyone who bears any interest in technology. Over 200 aircrafts (some of them placed inside hangars) - gliders, fixed-wing aircrafts, helicopters and engines of various eras, design... More
