  • Def. worth a trip if you like airplanes, and history. Just try to imagine flying in Iceland weather with very little resources and your chances of survival in a crash??

  • We loved this museum. It is, of course, not comparable with, for example, the one in Washington DC, but it is really nice.

  • Fantastic little stop in town - would absolutely recommend for anyone who enjoys aviation, vehicles or a really well curated exhibit. The curator was present when we visited on Saturday and she was informative, passionate and happy to share a wealth of knowledge with us. Loved it!
  • Wonderful museum with a lovely staff. You can walk under and inside the planes, not just around them. Our small, private event there was very enjoyable.
  • Very well curated museum with many specimens of aircrafts from the '30s onwards. Some planes are being restored by volunteers and others are still used in acrobatic flights. You can enter inside a coastal guard Fokker and read about the history of aviation in Iceland. Worth a visit for aviation enthusiasts and children!
  • If you're into aviation and enjoy history, its definitely at must stop.
  • Excellent little museum with all of the icelandic aviation history condensed in one place. Really enjoyed being able to walk inside the F-27 and the DC-3
