The aircraft in the collection were moved to Venegono Superiore during World War II, and the exhibition was reopened in Vizzola Ticino in the 1960s. At the end of the 1980s, the museum moved to its present location. The current museum building, 5km south of Trento and adjacent to the Trento Airport, was opened on 3 October 1992.

  • the caproni Museum is very interesting for both adults and children one realizes what he was traveling about 100 years ago compared to today you can figure out the speed of the times in one hundred years since the prehistory of flight to the present day unfortunately is small in relation to aircraft exposed to eye the planes seem huddled still very interesting to see prices great entrance vvisitatelo recommend

  • Museum small but very well maintained with great explanations. Staff really friendly. We liked it and my son loved flight simulators.

  • Unique facility of its kind, a piece of Italian history of aeronautical engineering. You can see pieces of aircraft built in the early 1900 and during the world wars. There is also the option of using two flight simulators. Overall very recommended.

  • Looking out on the highway in a shed near the helipad there is this museum which is accessed by a roundabout, in the direction of the dead end street, a dip in the glories of the past that smell of a dignity, honor, glory of an Italy that no longer exists. Remember the heroic deeds of the flight for Vienna, a handful of Patriots including Gabriele D'Annunzio, with a distribution of leaflets extolling an Italy Proud, free and Unita.Vi are different planes and free flight simulators, to understand the difficulties of the flight with biplanes, and sections of the various aeronautical components, small but nice.

  • Small museum, fun for children, on an hour you are outside. Only if you're in the flight simulator you have to want to join.

  • I found interesting the simulation part, in fact there are 4 3 aircraft simulators and a hang glider. May seem very game room 90 years and certainly have nothing to do with the latest consoles ps4 and surroundings but you can feel for him for a few minutes in a pilot of another era.
