Nice place to visit with the whole family. Everyone will find something interesting, even the kids (experiments). If you are not into museums you can always take a walk outside the hangars and see the plane "graveyard". Awesome.
I really enjoyed my time here. I had a very great tour, seeing the evolution of different aircraft models and the purpose for which they were initiated. highly recommended
This is a must see for any enthusiast in military aviation. The collections are extensive. I have never been to an aviation museum where they have a warehouse full of engines on display! If you are a fan of MIGs, you will be in jet heaven. All information board also have an English translation. Well worth a visit :-)
A fascinating museum with plenty of aircrafts and helicopters to view outside. Very good for photographers and aviation fans. Definitely recommended to visit during the day with good light and weather outside.
Fun to go and see all the MIGs, but everything looks pretty worn and some of the displays needed serious repair. The boys didn't seem to mind :)
Excellent museum many rare Soviet types. outside collection are well weathered but well worth a visit Free entry on Tuesdays, easy to get to using the 52 tram from the city centre, about eight stops. Get off at the Blue tailwind and aboutv5 minutes walk up a slight tree covered hill and houses. Worth a visit!!!
Fairly small building with some exhibits inside and a very big green field with many many planes. They are not very well preserved, but it is still a very nice experience.

Amazing place if you are interested in history and planes. Expect some outdoors and try not to go during harsh seasons
Nice museum, lots of interesting exponates. Family friendly. You should definitely go there when the weather is good and during a free Tuesday.
Amazing Aviation museum with lots of Soviet planes as well as the famous Junkers & Polish badged Supermarine spitfire. Fabulous exhibition of vintage planes from early days as well as lots of Polish military planes which on on display externally.
Worth the visit for the terrific collection of Cold War Warsaw Pact fighter jets. These early MiGs, Yaks and Sukhois are part of a vast outdoor collection of fixed and rotary wing aircraft. Most are examples of Soviet aircraft in Polish service, but there are British, Italian and German aircraft too, including a Polish squadron Spitfire. The engine collection shed has dozens of examples of classic combustion engines and jet propulsion systems. Unfortunately so much of the collection is housed outdoors, rusting away and it’s a shame to see the Cold War-era specimens slowly deteriorating, but a huge covered space would be required to accommodate to many of them. The museum is out of town, but easy to reach by tram. The tickets are very reasonable, but the facilities are quite simple, no cafe and the shop is quite small.
It is an amazing place for people how want to see a lot of unique plane. The exhibition is gorgeous, had a lot of real plane on the territory of the museum, and indoor they have a lot of mock ups.
Many interesting things to see and read about, for those interested in aviation. But even for those with little interest,can be a good idea to variate trips
Really worth a visit. Just a 20 minute tram (52) ride from the center. Free entry on Tuesdays.
An amazing amount of machinery. Lots of things to see and do. Good hour or two wondering around museum. Worth a visit.
A lot of aircraft that westerners would not normally see. It was good to see the engines in a separate display area. All in all a good day out for the family.
Great collection of aircraft and other items. As a person growing up on the Western side of the iron curtain, it was fantastic to see so many Eastern side aircraft up close.
Number of planes, engines and a lot of aviation history. Museum is huge, objects are in good shape. Must see!
