Ho visitato questo museo una sola volta in quanto appassionato di aeronautica ed astronautica, ma lo consiglierei anche a chi non mastica queste materie. I padiglioni non sono riscaldati quindi eviter... more »I visited this museum only once as fond of Aeronautics and Astronautics, but would recommend it to those who do not chew on these matters. The pavilions are not heated so I will not go back in January because the temperature can be prohibitive and will not let you fully enjoy your visit. Very nice the Hall space with a 1:1 scale reproduction of the Apollo 16 command module Casper. The Museum is big anyway and also includes flight simulators.
Abbiamo visitato io, mia moglie e nostro figlio di 8 anni questo polo museale senza aspettarci granché e invece devo dire che ci ha conquistati.

Sure, maintenance of outside attractions leave a bit to be desired (probably the classic lack of funding which in Italy is chronic for everything that is culture) but other than that you will be enthralled by the variety of attractions and the possibilities of interaction: on most of the carriages and tram, for example, as well as on military jeep you can climb , which my son really enjoyed. Of course the lion's share are the banquet on the fly, with pavilions dedicated to planes, other helicopters, others to model. Even the small museum focused on the figure of the great designer and artist Flaminio Bertoni is really complete and well done and of great interest is the area dedicated to space. Additional charm to the place comes from the fact that the Park/Museum is located inside the ex Caproni workshop (never seen animation masterpiece "the wind rises", of the great Director Miyazaki? You should definitely do it, it's a great tribute to our country). What can we say? We will definitely be back ...
Nel complesso mi è piaciuto, ottimi gli approfondimenti sullo spaZio. Vasta gamma di velivoli in mostra. Ci ritornerò sicuramente. more »Overall I liked it, very good insights on space. Wide range of aircraft on display. Will definitely be returning.
great place to spend a few hours .
Elisabetta CanutiVisited on a rainy Sunday. You can hop on some helicopters and planes. Price a little high but I actually use the money for restoration and maintenance. You cannot sack lunch. Large children's play area with bouncy castle (free) inside. To visit all need at least 4-5 hours
Paolo PustorinoA really nice place. Although it is a Museum is very suitable for children (there are two play areas, indoor and outdoor swimming pool in which you spend half of your visit if you have brats, but there are). The passion here reigns supreme, the staff are happy to help and you are free to discover so much about how the man started (and continued) to fly. Nice
Massimiliano TonaniLike every summer--trip to Volandia. By flight enthusiast, don't miss a visit to this truly comprehensive media collection. Pity that, every year that passes the structure seems increasingly neglected; dusty display cases, ruined salt (beautiful area dedicated to experimental talking is unfortunately an example), park outside dirt with garbage that comes out of the baskets. (whereas when I arrived this morning, there were 30 people, then, leftover days of lack of maintenance ...) Why? An opportunity to have a spectacular Museum that you are throwing it in the air! Applaud the initiative to transfer the Transport Museum Ogliari, unfortunately once again with the impression that it was a simple "removal", with the means still rotting away, literally, in the courtyard. Too bad! Will be back next year, certainly. ... is our way of supporting a park that, in spite of everything, we feel worthy of being visited! A positive nod, finally, volunteers in the area and space simulators .... really passionate and helpful!
Francesco RienziVolandia is an exclusive and unique museum dedicated to flight and its history. A space where you can visit the jewels of Italian civilian and military aeronautical engineering. The Museum near the airport of Milan Malpensa, has a shop, snack area and an equipped area for children. In short, a very interesting tourist attraction. I recommend it.
