Great experience. Planes are well maintained
Jun 2020
Great experience, especially for kids or those who loves plane and its history in Thai Airforce.
Planes in exhibition hall are well maintained. There are more of them outdoor, in the yard, and in the building in the back.
FYI, this place has no entrance fee.

The cheap method
Jan 2020
For those with much time but little money. Bus 503 from democracy monument will take there for 25baht thankfully its aircon but it's a long trip. Ask the conductor when to get off. Have the name written down or show your phone. If you look out of the left side of the bus on the way , after a long ride and almost there you will see Ying Charoen market which is worth a look on the way back.
The museum is brilliant so many aircraft to see up close and some you can go inside. The is a small cafe there too.

As an ex Air Force chappy it is excellent to see such an array of aircraft in relatively good nick which one can sit in, walk round and interact with. Free entrance makes this a real hidden gem.

Royal Thai Airforce Museum

A pretty good morning or afternoon stop for aviation enthusiasts. Tjey have a nice collection of fixed, folding and rotary aircraft. Tje museum is undergoing some renovations but mostly still intact.

It is free entry. However, there are 2 days to get there. The short way is closed to traffic most of the day as it cuts through the airbase. I had to go round the airbase the long way.

Closes at around 3:30pm and also I think on Tuesdays so be sure to check before you visit.

Great hidden Gem... Will become easy to visit next year when the railway station outside opens... If you have any interest in aviation, then this museum is a must... One hall was going through a major upgrade, you could just make out a F16 hidden under sheets... Great supply of badges at reasonable prices in the shop, which make excellent souvenirs... And entrance is free...

A Hidden Gem in Thailand
Dec 2018
What a hidden gem! If you are at all interested in aviation this is a great place to visit! Admission is free but it is a little hard to find as most cab drivers don't seem to know where it is. Some interesting aircraft on display and some nice exhibits. Worth much more than the admission price (free) and I easily spent the better part of the day there.

Definitely Worth The Trip if You Love Military Planes
May 2019
I thoroughly enjoyed my trip and I would go there again.

There is plenty of aircraft to see and take photos of.

Do grab a map and follow your way through as there is lots to see and the numerous aircraft outside are in great condition.

I went at a time where you could catch the train part of the way and then had to catch a taxi or bus the rest of the way. By the end of 2020, there will be a train station very close to it.

Unexpectedly Good Museum, nice collection of real aircraft!
Aug 2019
We visited on a whim because we were travelling via Don Muang Airport which is quite close by as the crow flies, however taking a Grabcar took a bit longer.
The museum, amazingly, is free. It is well presented and has an impressive collection of aircraft. I particularly liked the helicopter section, and there is a very hands on display of various examples from the early days of aviation to the present. Some sections of the museum have great air conditioning and display texts.Overall a great experience nonetheless. Highly recommended especially for people interested in aircraft!

Real Planes, Free Entry.
Apr 2019 • Family
With over 30 planes and helicopters displayed in the museum, this museum is exceptional especially when you consider the fact that there is no entry fee. The planes displayed here are in good condition, and many have actually served in war. This museum is also home to the last V-93S Corsair in the world, as well as the famous SAAB Gripen 39 which had featured in many Thai airshows. They also let you board and enter cockpits of old retired planes and take photos in them. For Plane spotters, you can get great shots of planes taking off from Don Mueang Airport from the parking lot on top of the old corsair.
