  • Away but easily accessible by bus, for lovers of military aircraft. Impressive hecilopteres. Free beautiful temporary exhibitions

  • The attendants are not very friendly (under the Brazilian point of view) but the location and fantastic aviation lovers. Worth it for the whole family watch the signs on street corners, the region and beautiful ... looks like film.

  • An interesting history that no admission cost and where to get a free great leadership on certain days (Saturday & Sunday). The exhibits there are on the open space or in halls. The airport in the ehmaligen tower are further exhibitions. Who likes can give a donation to the output, which is not mandatory but.

  • I'm not a keen of military subjects or war history but it was really great experience for me to see all those aircrafts, radars and weapons. There are so many outside and in few hangars. I take away one star in my review because of lack information in English and bad quality of display in hangars. It's all more disorienting than informing. Mix of pictures, artefacts and fragments of radar stations. Anyway it's still worth to visit and really fascinating. Display just need refreshing and modern approach. Place is easy to reach with bus and 20 minutes walk. And it's free. :)
  • Huge display of military exhibits, mostly aircraft that have been in service in the German Luftwaffe in the past decades. Some of them are indoors and in great shape, many of them are placed outdoors exposed to the weather and therefore less well maintained. Definitely worth a visit if you're an aviation fan
  • Due to the division of Germany the museum features a rich selection of aircraft from both west and east. Any type flown since 1945 is on display outdoors. In the hangars there is a historical exhibition including older aircraft (closed until 2017) and an exhibition on the history of the German Air Force with all major aircraft in superb condition indoors. Definitely one of the best (military) aircraft museums in Germany. Keep in mind the museum is an old airport and there are quite some distances to walk if you want to see all areas and you need some hours for all exhibitions. It's a bit hard to reach by public transport so leave early to enjoy all the aircraft.
  • Very impressive airplane collection with additions coming. It's definitely a plus that it's free. If you're into military aircraft, definitely worth it.
  • Its a good place for a walk. The planes are far one from the other and there are hardly any information in English. Compared with the museum in Cracow, Poland, it is very poor when it comes to exhibits and overall layout.
