The place is located on the opposite side of the City Airport from the terminal. (Not Landvetter Airport.) You will see a fighter jet next to the road where you tunr toward the airport.

It is an underground hangar of a Cold War airbase. Fantastic planes looming in the dark is just like what you expect to see in the movies. The fact that you can climb into the cockpit of a couple of different fighter jets with everything intact is something you don't find in the US.

For the person whom interested in the history of the Swedish airforce. It is situated at the old military airfield (now used as a commercial city airport) Säve - now known as Gothenburg City Airport,

We did the same as the other reviewer and took the 35 bus, which dropped us a short walk from the entrance. The bunker is really cool, so atmospheric. My friends loved seeing the Drakens and Viggens, but were especially impressed to see the Lansen (quite rare - according to my partner). As mentioned by previous reviewer, you can clamber around, getting in and out of some aircraft, and touch almost everything on display. Around £8 and a good 2 hours of entertainment.

Aeroseum is something that you must experience for yourself. You need to travel a bit to get there, depending on where you are staying. We were near the central station so we had to take the tram, then a bus, and then walk roughly 400-600m. It is located on the edge of the airport, down a long road to the underground bunker. Staff there is super friendly and helpful and also speak English if you need help. Entrance is free with the Gothenburg city card. Once inside you will be shocked at just how big the place is. There is lots of information on the history and building of the bunker as well as the cold war and about each exhibit you see (information is available in English and Swedish). There are planes, jets, cars, war equipment, simulators, and more. Lots and lots of photo opportunities available. You can climb inside a lot of the jets and get a feel for what it would be like to fly in one. The museum feels like it is run by a group of volunteers who have a passion for flying and the industry, so there isn't a whole lot of consistency in the exhibits, and some areas are closed off where you can just see loads of miscellaneous equipment that has been donated. Some people were there doing hobbies as well. There is a small cafe and gift shop there as well. If your feet can handle the walk, you must go and see if for yourself.

We didnt now what to expect when we decided to visit this museum. There were lots of adverts for it at the airport so we thought we'd give it a go.

Getting here is a bit of an effort but certainly not that difficult. Take the No. 35 bus from the Bus Station North of the River (Dont know the name of it - its over the large river bridge from the main centeral bus / tram / railway station). The tourist info people gave us clear directions. Its esy to spot where to get off the bus - theres an aircraft with Aeromuseum on its tail near the stop. 7 or 8 mins walk and youre at the Museum.

From the outside there is very little to see - the museum is housed below a hill. An old aircraft Taxi Way leads into a man made tunnel - then one enters via huge blast doors into a vast labrynth of tunnels ! Aircraft are parked inside - initially to look at - but when one gets to the center of the museum one can sit in the Jets and play / have photos taken etc etc. Very different from so many museums which have the aircraft roped off - these you can really clamber into the cockpit and get a feel of what piloting them was like ! Awesome ! There are the usual Swedish aircraft ( Viggen, Draken) and some helicopters and an old biplne.

Interestingly they have aircraft nose Radars on display, engines, weaponry and the like. When we visited there was a special expo on spying ( All in Swedish though - didnt understand any of it !).)

There are activities for smaller children, a lot of aircraft related activities for them (All very educational). Theres a nice cafe - not overly cheap but par for the course.

The real star for us tho was the bunker it's self - the huge blast doors, decontamination showers fitted to the roof, fuel points etc etc - absolutley fascinating.

Our only gripe is there is a control room and other areas we could not get to as these are only open for tours of the bunker, which stopped earlier in the year (We would have loved to have gone on one). There is very little signage for what some of the items in the bunker did (We worked out what the decontamination showers were for - for example).

However all in all an absolutley brilliant Museum for the fact you can clamber around the aircraft and the sheer James Bond Baddy Secret Bunkerness of it all. A super afternoon out !
