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.

  • A nice Museum, to see, especially if it is close, is not the English or American R.a.f. museum or a museum but given our history, short and not particularly bright to see.

  • 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.

  • Small but interesting ... perhaps the oldest preserved collection of aircraft ... funny also try 3 simulators. ...

  • 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.
