I’ve visited this excellent museum twice. Still have not gotten enough of it. More aircraft than you can imagine and more types than you ever knew existed. Wear good walking shoes and take a lunch. Go early so you can have enough time. Enjoy.

All days, from 9:00 to 18:00 hrs, except in winters when it opens from 9:30 to 17:00 hrs. It's easy to get a cab for the return trip, since a lot of taxi drivers used to wait outside the parking station for new customers.
