  • Volandia Museum is applied directly behind the airport Malpensa and has free parking on site. It is an excellent opportunity to go with your family or friends to know about the origins of the Italian flight and see first hand planes and helicopters of all types. Easy ticket price.

  • Pleasant afternoon in the midst of so many means of transport. News and interesting information on the flight and on various types of flying machines. Many volunteers with great passion ready to give explanations and information. Plenty of space for children, picnic areas for both indoor and outdoor games. The part dedicated to Earth (ex museo Ogliari steam trains, buses, etc) need for better accommodation, there is a path to follow. Maintenance and reset for some exhibits. Suggested with all kinds of weather and climate

  • A visit that Board do with the whole family to make it clear to children (but not only) Italian civil and military aviation history, and even if you aren't particularly keen to field the exhibition captures the attention of the visitor. Well illustrated also offers the chance to take a tour (from 12 years) on flight simulators, and with the help of real riders explain various commands and maneuvers to make. A truly unique experience. A thought and a prayer go to Pietro Venanzi and Herb Moran, 609 tiltrotor test experts of dead heroes in fall 2015. Pictures and explanation of this aircraft by the master Venanzi will remain etched in my memory.

  • great place to spend a few hours .
  • Visited 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

  • A 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

  • Like 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!

  • Volandia 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.
