“Portuguese aircraft and air industry memorabilia”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Visited 'Museu do Ar', the Portuguese Air Force Museum, today.

First, it now appears to have moved since the earlier review was posted some four years ago.

The address now is:
Granja do Marqués 2715-021 Péro Pinheiro, Tel: 21 9678984 museudoar@emfa.pt and it is thus now between Sintra and Mafra, at what appears to be a small Air Force training base.

A fairly comprehensive collection of Portuguese aircraft through the years, some civilian, most military, including plenty of early military memorabilia and civilian TAP Portuguese Airline memorabilia.

There are basic refreshment facilities, though these were closed on the day of our visit (a Wednesday).

Obviously, if aircraft are your thing, this place will be of interest to you anyway, but it passed away an interesting hour or so for the two of us (who are not aviation enthusiasts) on a rainy day.

We wouldn't have made it here without our rental car and a satnav though!
