Finnish Aviation Museum Reviews
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 »
Музей довольно таки любопытный. Много интересных и редких экспонатов. Их много,но все таки два ангара,на мой взгляд маловато будет для такого количества экспонатов. 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 ♤
