  • Great place to bring kids, fun exhibits. Only downside is that it was pouring with rain when we went and could not avoid massive puddles when going from building to building, obviously only a problem in the rain..
  • The museum is interesting and entertaining, but some of the attractions are not well maintained, some are still being repaired and there are no guides for visitors.
  • Sizeable collection of aircrafts of different types and generations. The area dedicated to the space missions is mostly props, imitations and copies, but it seems to impress the kids all the same. It includes a playground for kids, adjacent to the usual horrid bar/fast-food restaurant.
  • great place to spend a few hours .
  • Beautiful park dedicated to Flight and hobbies. Born in the old workshop structure subassemblies Caproni. Located close to Malpensa airport and you can see planes taking off. Ample parking and easy access to the hotel. Well organized. I visited 2 times and have noticed significant improvements, surely will grow again. Also great for children. Planes and helicopters have been restored to perfezione...si immediately notice the passion and energy that they put into this place and the fly.
