  • High rating conditionally. It is constantly evolving and very promising. Big impression doing all sorts of events held in the area. Collections rich and in fairly good condition. Lacks more detailed descriptions, history of the individual. The machine closed in they do the greatest impressions.

  • Biggest most comprehensive collection of all versions og Migs and PZL and Sukhois and all Eastern Block countries aeroplane industries creations. Gliders. Helicopters. Engines. They got it all. Theme exhibitions. Lots is going on here. Most (of the older) posters still in Polish only. Same with the books in the shop. The outdoors planes getting increasingly rusted and molded...

  • Lot of aeroplanes/jets mostly from former eastern block (Mig, Su, Mil, ...)
