“Simply fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013 via mobile

An amazing museum situated on an old Cold War airstrip. Apart from a great Cold War collection if migs and other newer aircraft, it had an impeccable collection if ww1 and ww2 aircraft, including some of Herman Goerings personal planes and the spectacularly mint condition aircraft that opened the 1936 Olympics. A bonus are all the missile emplacements, aa guns and vehicles from the Cold War. Staff were very friendly, I would recomend you buy the guide book as it is very informative as you go around. Even though prices are cheap in Krakow, if you go to this museum on a Tuesday entrance is free. Be aware it is closed on Mondays as are all the museums and sites in Poland.

“Terrific air museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2013

Superb museum with large collection of planes - both modern & historic. The museum sells a catalogue/book detailing all the aircraft on display, which is very useful & good value. Very cheap entry fee & helpful staff - who were happy to phone a taxi for us when we left.
Hint - we took the bus to the museum,which was fairly straight forward. However when we got off, we didn't know the exact location of the museum. When you alight the bus, follow the main road / tram line north for a 5 minute walk, then cross the main road / tram line at the lights.

“Well worth seeing !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

One more aviation museum ? I read your mind and see what you're thinking.... NEVER !
This place has got the most breathtaking collection of unusual planes, and some of them authentic historical pieces :
A comprehensive series of most MiG fighters (15 to 29).
The only PZL P 11c Polish fighter still in existence, a survivor of the outbreak of WWII....
A Ju52 German trimotor...

And among the bits and pieces of airframes to be restored a vintage Antoinette French plane built over a century ago, the body of the 1939 speed record plane Messerschmitt 209 V1 (holder of the airspeed record for propeller planes until 1969).

Air fans, do not miss the place !

“Interesting, different!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2013

Very different - the majority of the aircraft are outside. Lots of Soviet era aircraft but also many going back to the pioneering days of flight. Head there on a Tuesday and admission is free!

“interesting, different”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2013

It's got that good balance of interesting aircraft. Has quite a lot of Migs, agricultural aircraft, engines, etc.. A bit tricky to find on foot,
