Norwegian Aviation Museum (Norsk Luftfartsmuseum)
Ranked #1 of 62 things to do in Bodo
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed July 26, 2012

Absolutely fascintaing place with many hands-on exhibits as well as historical details regarding the development on Norway's aviation sector and an enormous number of planes on show including the U2 spyplane.

From the earliest days of norway's flight pioneers right up to the modern day, this wonderful collection really charts the course of the Norwegian air industry's history.

Special mention must be made of the exhibits relating to the war and occupation of Norway, its connextions to the Flying Boat squadrons based in my native Scotland and the U2 plane on display.

The museum itself is a modern well-appointed building and a credit to the small town of Bodø where it is housed, which is also the site of a Royal Norwegian Airforce base so when you're finished viewing the exhibits you have the chance to see the modern fighter jets of the Norwegian Airforce racing through the skies over the town.

An amazing museum with everything you ever wanted to know about the history of flight, up to the present day. Dozens of aircraft, flight simulator and hands-on exhibits. Good restaurant.

If you have fascination with flying/airplane, then this place is really for you. The collection and exhibits are impressive. I love the airplanes inside this museum. You can also experience simulation flying here.

What I love most is the building of the museum. It looks like a small airport (the tube, the control tower, etc).

This place is very impressive. You'll need at least 2 or 3 hours. It's divided into civil and military displays, equally interesting. Quite surprising, except that it is the national air museum; there isn't one in Oslo. You can get there on a city bus that leaves from near the waterfront in the center of town. It's best to ask a bus driver where to get it. Others I asked were clueless.

This is a huge museum which is well worth a visit. Lots of different aircraft to see, a good coffee shop! and an aviation tower where you can watch the Bodo live runway from.
