Having all positive and negative reviews in mind, I would still suggest to visit this place and spend your afternoon there. The museum is a bit "tired" and has a shabby appearance. It is situated in a former aircraft factory and occupies a vast territory. The exposition represents flight history from first planes, air balloons into air space. There is a huge exposition of helicopters. Myself and my kids really enjoyed it, as some of them you can enter. There is nothing better when you can actually touch what you see. To have the best from this museum: choose a sunny day to visit. The museum is consisted of separate buildings, you need to go outside to visit them. Part of exposition, like aircarfts are outside as well. Take a sandwich with you and snacks for when you get hungry. There are a couple of tables outside. There are few bars on the territory and a restaurant, but in my opinion, not worth your visit. We paid double for croissants at the bar. There were only few choices for the snacks.

A great museum for anyone interested in planes (or any transport from carriages, to trains, to cars). It’s right next to Malpensa airport (a short walk from Terminal 1 train station) so chance to do some live plane spotting while there! There is so much to see in the museum, from the very earliest planes to a surprisingly detailed section on space. The exhibits have captions in both Italian and English. There is also a variety of things to see both inside and outside in wide open spaces, which is great for children, and there's play equipment to break up the visit a little for them. There are plenty of cafe facilities and space to eat your own picnic. The museum is obviously staffed by friendly enthusiasts keen for families to enjoy and get something from their visit. Thank you!

Spent a day in this museum. Had a really good time. There are hangars and open area where mostly airplanes and helicopters are displayed but there is a zone of cars, buses and trains of italian production displayed too. Loved a fact that you can actually enter in some of the planes displayed outside on the field such as DC-9 and MD-82. Nice view of terminal 1 of Malpensa airport. You can see planes taking off. If you come with the public transportaion to visit museum you need to get off at Malpensa airport terminal 1 and there is a walkway from the terminal 1 to the museum which is very well signed. Just one part you need to walk on a dirt path and just hope it doesn’t rain as you will walk in a mud. All in all great day out!
