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.

  • Absolutely recommend a visit to anyone who's moving from these beautiful places, come visit the Museo dell'aeronautica Gianni Caproni. Dedicated to the historic civil engineer and electrical engineering of Trento who devoted practically his entire life to aircraft. It ' really interesting to see with their own eyes pieces of planes of the first and second world wars and many remains of other aircraft '' survivors '' as it were, until the present day. There are also fitness equipment for those who want to try their hand at flight test.

  • I'm here to talk about a birthday to my son 8 years old and his companions, we book a Museum since my son loves planes, the idea that we propose is very nice party then simulators and possible visit us nn we did, well never mind children interested in flying ... first hour hitch inside a smallish but cozy room , then the second part to forget nn for the Museum and activities, ma.per the staff too rude and got a tax pure young lady who had the severity and kindness, small with glasses seems Ilaria but nn I would confuse me while the other girl ... forgettable, nn ho parole too hard and almost dictatorial, I understand it is a Museum, and it is right to maintain a certain decorum but get to make the birthday boy who wanted to go home nn do the Simulator just because he and his partner are a. little pinched without running without pushing, threatening them of nn let them on the Simulator, it seems too, 20 min to convince him and communicated to the responsible, I paid 100 euros and see my son cry and nn want to attend his party made my blood boil and I believe we will go further and the sconsiglierò but shame because the idea is excellent and well run, you have to put your

  • I was in Trento for a weekend, and taking a look at things around, I found the Caproni Museum. Small but very interesting, there are unique pieces that, aviation enthusiasts or not, worth seeing, and super friendly staff! Written documents, whole-scale aircraft, medals and many other exhibits; .3 both simulators also by children but also by the great!! To go with friends, or their children. A pleasant moment throughout the day!!

  • 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.
