A fantastic display of Turkish Air Force aircraft including F-16, all in excellent condition. Exhibits are slightly too close together for easy photography - wide angle recommended. Inside are a limited number of older exhibits and an impressive model collection which is well worth a look in itself.
I visited on a 'public holiday' - Sugar Feast or Şeker Bayramı – the End of Ramadan, but it made no discernable difference - it was still open as normal - but very quiet. Museum seemed to be staffed by conscripts (national service still applies in Turkey). English is not widely spoken here although some of the inside exhibits do have English translations.
The train line is currently disrupted due to track upgrades, with no through service Istanbul- Yesilkoy. A bus service passes the door however. I used a private pre-booked (from the UK) taxi service from the cruise port - charge 30 Euro (each way)(Mercedes minibus), took about 50 mins - Efendi Travel (recommended)(driver very helpful and courteous). Bus/train would be cheaper. If Turkish Air Force aircraft are your sort of thing - this is a great way to pass a couple of hours. It does exactly what it says on the tin!
