  • Board a ride to the Museum only if some fans of the genre otherwise you risk boredom. Cinsono many aircraft restored, others kept in a corner and you don't understand why. Of course Malta had during World War II a negative lead having been bombed. There are also many military uniforms, always for lovers of militaria

  • Well run, staff courteous and polite, beautiful idea to do it inside the hangar makes the idea of the historicity of the planes ... it was fun and instructive to see all those historical aircrafts with instrumentation, not being fans thought we find him visiting uninteresting instead was the complete opposite, getting into the cockpit of a plane, see all the pieces of the engine separately , propellers .... it was a great experience. If you go around there is definitely worth visiting.

  • Great place the crew is very kindly and the kids enjoy the exhibition
  • Excellent ,well worth a visit. Seeing a spitfire up close was worth the trip in itself.
  • Interesting hodge-podge of aircraft in various states of restoration, if you happen to be in the area it's worth stopping by if you're an aviation enthusiast. The cafe is only a few vending machines, so don't plan on finding a meal there.
  • It's a lovely place to visit. And some interesting items.
  • Best aviation museum with great exhibits
