Museum is well structured so military/historical is on other civil aviation. There are some very nice planes i haven't seen other places from WW2 time. Also these historical stories of Norwegian own aviation landmarks are interesting. Civil aviation part was maybe not as interesting for me but some nice stuff is available. Also this "working" air traffic control tower was interesting to see.

A large collection of military and civilian airplanes in Norway through the ages. The museum is built around the old control tower of Bodø Airport. Parking is free for two hours and access is easy.

The civilian side of the exhibition is centered on the different aviation enterprises of Norway, showcasing many different planes. In this side there is also a flight simulator.

The military side features many different airplanes as well as the history of Norwegian military aviation in pictures as well as snippets of information. A lot of effort has been put to introducing the training of Norwegian pilots in the US during the second world war.

All in all well worth the visit when in Bodø. I'd recommend early morning when the museum opens to enjoy the exhibition almost alone.

A very comprehensive museum split into Civilian and Military sections. A great way to pass a few hours, particularly if the weather is bad.

This aviation museum is only a very short bus ride from the dock. You could probably walk it comfortably if you have the time.

The museum itself is split into 2 areas. You enter the building at about the center. If you turn right you go to the area for civilian aviation and the early history of flight. If you go left you enter WW2 and later.

The displays are well laid out and have plenty of English text for us English speakers. You can even go upstairs into what must have been the old control tower. The view over the airfield is fantastic. The airfield is operational and you may even catch a Norwegian Airforce F16 doing touch and goes.
