  • The Aviation Museum is located at the airport. There are a lot of planes that are connected to Iceland or Icelandic airlines in some way. Interestingly, small planes (2-3 seats) are all fully functioning. Even those produced in 1937. The museum keeper tells us that he flies them periodically. One Cessna even belongs to him
  • Better than expected!! We went out of season and found the responsible there. We asked him if it was closed and he said: "yes. But you are welcome". We really appreciated the opportunity of visit. The Fokker F-27 is impressive, and the rest of the airplanes have its own history. The majority are still capable to fly!! I think it is a remarkable and different visit that anyone will enjoy; you don't need to be a freak of airspace!!
  • Very nice, drop by if you are an aviation enthusiast
  • Small museum but with a very nice collection of aircrafts from various periods. Definietly recommendes if you have an hour to spare. Additional bonus, is right next to the local airport, so you might see some planes taking off or landing while in the museum.
  • We went out of season and we found the responsible there. He was glad to recieve us and he let us visit the museum during the morning. There is a lot of airplanes and neary all of them are ready to fly. You will find amazing models like Piper J-3 Cub, Pitts S-1XS, Fokker F27 and Douglas DC-3. All of them has amazing histories related with Icelandic aviation. You must visit this museum if you step Akurery!
