Malta Aviation Museum, Ta' Qali

(4.3/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Located on a former Royal Air Force airfield, Malta Aviation Museum enlightens visitors with the island's history of aviation, featuring impressive collections dating from World War II. Browse displays of aircraft, engines, uniforms, and model planes throughout three hangars. Keep your eyes peeled for the Hawker Hurricane, recovered from the sea in 1995 after its use in World War II. If you're lucky, you may even see this fully restored plane in action. Also look for aircrafts like the de Havilland Tiger Moth and the fuselage skeleton of the Fairey Swordfish.

  • 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
