#3 of 13 in Museums in Trento
The Gianni Caproni Museum of Aeronautics is Italy's oldest aviation museum, as well as the country's oldest corporate museum. It was established in 1927 as the Caproni Museum by Italian aviation pioneer and aeronautical engineer, Giovanni Battista "Gianni" Caproni and his wife, Timina Guasti Caproni.The museum was originally located in Taliedo, in the suburbs of Milan. 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.

  • Very interesting the visit, with the possibility to use computers as flight tests for children; they really enjoyed and experienced something new. Small but nice airplane Museum. When we went there was a chance to do a helicopter flight, made by children with dad.

  • It is part of the regional network of MU.SE. This small Museum of the air force wanted to by Mr and Mrs Cameron with exposed a series of aircraft, memorabilia and documents relating to the history of flight. You just browse the multimedia stations in the exhibit hall, workshop for the construction of the propellers and the exhibits with aircrafts.

  • A nice collection of unique planes, from early pioneers of flight to the jet-powered F-104 Starfighter. I recommend you to visit if you're keen on aviation history (surprisingly), especially in the 10s and 20s. You can get very close to the aircraft to see all the details. On the other hand, the museum was smaller than I expected, and the airplanes are very close to each other, which sometimes cuts the view. Not everything is translated to English, but that wasn't a big problem for me. The staff was very kind, helpful and friendly. They immediately offered me student discount and called a taxi for me to get back. I came there on foot because I had a lot of time, but it's quite far from the city. It's a lot easier to get there by car or by bike; unfortunately there's no public transport. But still, I highly recommend you to visit it if you have some time in Trento. And I give a special thanks to the staff.
  • A museum with a collection nothing short of exceptional! There are also some unique pieces worldwide. Set up in a hangar at the airport in Trento, is also suitable for families with children. Available parking and is easily accessible by bike from the bike path. Not to be missed

  • The great thing about this museum is related essentially to the fact that it was founded by Caproni and the fact I have some original planes of great historical value. Staff and three very funny simulators for children (two planes and a hang glider), apart from that for children can be a bit boring. I thought there were several rooms, in reality there is only one large room where are located the various aircraft. Volandia Museum of Malpensa I believe offers many more points of curiosity for young and old.
