  • Don't underestimate how big this place is like me. You can easily spend over two hours looking at everything, more if it's busy. The exhibits are great you can climb into the cockpit of multiple aircraft.
  • One of the most unique museum visits I've experienced. The aeromuseum is housed in a cold war era underground cave and showcases planes from all eras including from early 1900s when flight was invented.
  • This is one of the few places where one can experience the saab viggen jet fighter simulator. A must visit for aero enthusiasts!
  • Very bad hospitality. We arrive at 16:55 after a long trip and a lot of traffic. The woman at the gate says we can not enter, last visit was at 17. But museum closed at 18. We know we had only one hour but... This is not the right way with turist.
  • I was truly surprised at all the items the museum has in it's collection. Not only can you see multitude of items, you can actually sit in the cockpit of a jet fighter (actually more than one). The museum is both interesting and informative. The only negative thing I could say is that it's a bit cluttered, and it could perhaps be a bit more focused. This is however a minor thing in the bigger context. It should also be noted, that they have a few simulators setup, with aircraft controls, some of the simulators have 180° displays. You might need to make a reservations if you want to use them. I would recommend budgeting around 3 hours for a visit, but it could be stretched out to a full day activity. They have guided tours, both in Swedish and English, look at their website for info on when they are.
