  • In this museum you can see the history of the Finish Aviation. A must see for plane lovers. Easy reachable by foot or public transport.  more »
  • The museum is quite curious. Lots of interesting and rare exhibits. They are many, but still two hangars, in my opinion is not enough for such a number of exhibits.

  • Nice museum, not the biggest in space but surprisingly much crammed in it. A large variety of planes and even a couple of helicopters. Nicely used different props like airport stairs to get up to a balcony of smaller things. A nice little gift shop with things to buy as memorabilia.
  • Very compact but full of interesting pieces of aviation history ♤
