Specialty Museum Museum
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.

  • It is in a remote location in an old hangar hangar near Rabat 2 km northeast of Mdina. is a Museum for fans where you find pieces of engines, nacelles, instrumentation, and there are ongoing projects of reconstruction of old planes of World War II. Highlight of the collection is a Spitfire Mk IX, a Vampire T11, a Fiat G91R and an old Dakota DC3. To go to the Museum takes the bus.

  • If you like aviation and a history it's a place you will spend very nice time. Unfortunately collection is not to big but everything is presented in the interesting way. Good for adults and kids. You should plan 30-50 minutes
  • Got some nice planes here could do with a little more information on each plane. Good for a hour or so.
  • Nice collection of historic aviation exhibits. Free car parking onsite. Worth a visit if history and planes is of interest to you.
  • Nice place packed with aircraft and other. Nice and very helpful people too
  • Always enjoy my visits here. A couple new additions since I was last here. All in all still makes for a nice day out. Entry per adult is 7euros. There is a small outhouse with a coffee vending machine, unforunately it seemed to only want to dispense hot water the day I went which was a bit of a shame. All the same look forward to returning in the future.
