  • A very interesting place, full of flying machines, including older and newer planes. Big venue, really interesting exhibition. 
  • Aviation enthusiast I am not, never well I wasn't. In childhood, of course I played with in the gluing some aircraft there, but any passion not turned into. By the way one of the trips to Krakow, we decided to explore these Museum and it was a proverbial shot in 10. Countless exhibits, each plate with the comprehensive information and our admiration. The admiration over the performance of machinery in remote times, over and over, mounting technique design panache. I didn't want to go out there in spite of that, it began a big rain, and on the square outside happen yet so many machines. For sure I will go back there again

  • For men and children very everything interesting. Not even aware of the existence of individual aircraft. Not for nothing is wasted time, that's for sure!

  • Lots of different old airplanes and other artifacts from airplanes (seats and bombs mostly). I found it interesting to see how big the size difference is on many of the fighter jets. There is a good interactive area where the kids can sit in an airplane and fly a simulator.
  • I spent a good part of a day there during my Kraków trip and I highly recommend it to any aviation enthusiast! There is so much to see and if you are like me and love to take pictures it's perfect!
  • 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...
  • Like the possibility to look really from small distance. You can even touch the planes. So sad I had only about one hour to take look, so it was so quick. I would have to take a look again here once again.
  • Lot of aeroplanes/jets mostly from former eastern block (Mig, Su, Mil, ...)
