  • Visited this whilst in Malta. It's a fascinating insight into what Malta had to endure because of the Nazi's and fascists in WW2. They have two cracking aeroplanes there that were the main reason for ...  more »

  • Limited resources with many "projects" in the knots. However worth a hattlyft. The Spitfire was absolutely fantastic with their "ökenfärg". Probably worth a visit.

  • This small group of dedicated aviation enthusiasts are doing the 'impossible' with their limited resources. Thank you for such a beautiful collection of legendary aircraft. I appeal to the general public and the authorities to support this museum by all means posible
  • Quite small but cheap too, has a lovely restored hurricane and spitfire fighters and the other exhibits allow you to get close to see details of the aircraft.
  • A really good museum.Well laid out and the aircraft are maintained by volunteers.Easy to find and a few minutes walk from the bus stop.well worth a visit.Right next to the national stadium.sadly queue jumped by a bus sightseeing tour.It is possible to sit in the cockpit of the spitfire and have your photo taken.Small fee.As i said,the girl on reception decided to serve 5 people whilst ignoring me so i didn't get to sit in a spit.I was attracted to the sound of a hammer hitting metal while i was there.Turns out a British volenteer was repairing the wing of a meteor jet fighter.Its nice to have a chat with my own country folk who are now living abroad.I did offer to help him fix the plane.Another time maybe.
  • Great place if you want to see real airplanes.
  • Good display but there is no one around to actually show and tell. I think the money spent are not totally wasted though
