Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 240+ 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.

  • To the the fantastic condition of these planes and jets and the different aviation machines was great. They have worked very hard to bring them back to life and have done a fine job. 
  • Excellent collection, nice to see the swordfish from Sherburn-in-elmet
  • One of the best museums on the island
  • Had a great time at the aviation museum, found it very interesting, seeing all the aircraft at it, and seeing how they restore the aircrafts.
  • I absolutely love this little pearl of a museum. It is not Duxford or the Air and Space Museum in Washington, but is still an amazing place. And it is run by an NGO, not the Maltese government. To see how they are able to restore a plane that has been under water for more than 60 years is incredible. I recommend everyone to go there and come on. 6 Euros entry fee is not a hefty price for a museum like this, remembering that the museum is run by mostly volunteers and on donations. I was there in July 2014. Important note: For all of you out there with a spouse and/or children NOT interested in aviation, the nearby Craft Village is perfect the them. They'll spend hours looking at glass making, jewelry, ceramics and so on while you have time to read and learn about aviation history :-)
  • Many historical artifacts, planes, cars and documents
