  • Finnish aviation history, a lot of equipment, and aviation-related technology. Location a little bit lonely

  • The Museum is located near the airport. Can be reached on foot. Entrance adult €10. The Museum consists of two hangars (unheated in winter temperature as outdoors) where we can see a rather large collection relating to the history of Finnish aircraft aviation. Aircraft course basically is not Finnish, since Finns their planes almost never did. The first hangar airplanes from World War II and older model aircraft in the second postwar period, including civil aviation. In one of the passenger aircraft, you can even go and appreciate the comfort of the salons of the middle of the last century. Between the hangars there is a Hall with air gym, which can try any makes. The people at the Museum quite a bit, so queues at trainer is likely to be no. While we were in the Museum, visitors saw only one more Finnish family with a child. In general the Museum quite interesting. About the majority of the exhibits there is a description in Finnish and English. Cons-little interactivity. I would like to number bolem aircraft could sit in the cockpit and the spinning wheel, but unfortunately not) there are several cabs, which are kind of expected visitors ' entrance, but when we were in the Museum, they were all locks are closed. Recommended to visit everyone who has got a couple of free hours before the flight.

  • We with the husband was a little time to appreciate this museum. I'll start with the pluses: quite interesting exposition, many Soviet aircraft, which flew the Finns, fighting for Nazi Germany (this fact is not a disadvantage of the Museum, I believe)), there is a plane that can go sit in it, walk, there is a Simulator flight. Price for Finnish Museum is quite adequate, 10 euros. And a big plus for me-at least visitors! We were alone all the time. Cons: Oh ooooooooochen cold!) When we went outside, it seemed there was warmer (and on the street -4 in just a minute), interactivity was not enough. In the first room it was not at all, he was the second and the third a bit. If you have time, it would be pretty here pass the interesting, especially if you are fond of aviation. Children like Flight Simulator, although the graphics in it, to be honest, not a fountain.
