Beautiful layouts with vintage aircraft, and with interesting cultural elements that explain the technique and the history of the Italian air force. Very nice the area dedicated to the heroes of flight and fantastic the idea to make it possible to try the simulators with different levels of difficulty, thanks to the good volunteers who manage the area. Very well equipped children's area, convenient picnic area. A pity, however, see the collection historical media are in terrible shape: Ogliari poorly maintained, dirty and in some cases even contain garbage and junk. The Italy's largest miniature railway is in disastrous condition: dirty, dusty and broken buildings vehicles full of cobwebs, broken rails, disconnected, period pieces kept very badly and treated worse than miserable used plastic toys. The poor Ogliari must be turning in his grave.

You have to be honest, the Park is well structured and equally treated, no shortage of attractions and the interest of children and adults reading eye in astonishment looking at those flying machines! Spectacular

And it was also nice to see that were much to read so many explanations that are written in various sheds. I recommend going.
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 .
Antracite 79Beautiful 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.
