TAM Museum - CLOSED, Sao Carlos
TAM Museum - CLOSED, also known as the “Wings of a Dream Museum,” houses historic aircraft from TAM airlines. The museum was conceived by two brothers, Rolim Adolfo Amaro and João Francisco Amaro, hobbyists who kept a small collection of private planes that they flew on the weekends. Their collection began to grow, and they realized that their plane models represented various milestones in Brazilian aviation and decided to found a museum that opened to the public in 1991. There you will find Cessna models alongside seaplanes, as well as a Dassault Mirage III and a F4U Corsair. The space houses over 80 planes in total.

  • TAM Museum used to be the biggest private airline sponsored museum in the world. It really deserves the visit. There are more than 90 aircrafts that tell the history of aviation, mainly the Brazilian one. There is a place for kids to play and interact with the aviation environment. The collection has started on 1966 by the founders of TAM with a 1950' Cessna-195. Today, some of the relics include a Cessna 305A Bird Dog, a Bücker CASA Bü1131-E Jungmann, a Curtiss-Robin C2, a Lockheed T-33 (Shooting Star), a replica of the 14-Bis (the world's first successful airplane flown by the Brazilian inventor Santos Dumont), a Fleet II, a Gloster, a Grumman P-16E Tracker, a Lockheed L-049 Constellation, among others.
  • Excelente muitas peças interessantes
  • Sensacional!
  • Maior museu do gênero na América latina
  • Absurdo, decepção e indignação isso é o que eu e minha família estamos sentindo hoje 30/01/2016, pois viajamos 450 km ida e volta de São Paulo até São Carlos para ir ao museu da aviação, mais conhecido como museu da TAM, que é mantido pela companhia aérea de mesmo nome, e qual foi a nossa surpresa, o museu está fechado, sem data para reabrir, e só descobrimos isso no local quando o segurança disse “o museu está fechado por problemas técnicos, sentimos muito”, mas no site do museu não existe nenhuma indicação no calendário deles dizendo que estão fechados, muito pelo contrário, aparece que está tudo normal. O problema é ter que explicar para uma criança de 7 anos que a viagem toda de carro não serviu para nada e que perdemos o dia, e toda a expectativa deve foi pelo ralo, pois vimos várias fotos na internet antes de irmos. Agora tenho duas perguntas a fazer, a primeira é, quanto tempo mais vocês vão levar para coloca no site do museu que o mesmo encontra-se fechado sem data para reabrir, pois assim como eu, várias outras pessoas estão passando por isso. A segunda pergunta é quem irá pagar pelos pedágios e pelo combustível que gastei para ir até lá, pois fiz essa viagem com esse propósito, e não gosto de ser feito de palhaço. Vou rever e todas as minhas viagens de negócios e fazer cotações com as outras companhias, pois se a TAM está começando a tratar os visitantes do seu museu com descaso, quem dirá então nos seus vôos, vou comprar de outros mesmo sendo mais caro.
