    Somewhat away from the city (have to take bus 35), vale worth visit if you like aviation. It is an ancient underground base in times of the cold war, excavated in the rock and which have been converted into a museum. You can hop into the cockpit of various appliances, there are flight simulators, costumes, seats... And a cafeteria where eat something before

    This is a quite original exhibition that is well worth a visit for aviation enthusiasts. An impressive diversity of planes (mostly swedish), and especially choppers, is shown in an underground hangar....  more »

    The experience of entering an underground military base itself is worth the visit! The museum shows you many different planes and tries to teach you about Sweden's military and the Cold War. There are...  more »

  • 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.
  • Many collections of aircrafts and some science explanations. Kid friendly zone but need to walk around 850 m from bus stop. Better with private transport.
  • Nice place for avgeeks, a lot of planes and helicopters, kids friendly. Quite far from bus stop, so better to go by car
  • Lot of historical aircrafts in underground hangar. Must see if interested in history and aviation! There is a caffe and playground for kids, as well as 'tipspromenad' for children. Better with the car: quite far walk from the bus stop.
  • Child friendly museum. Cheap entrance and free parking. There is also access by bus for this although it is located far from the city centre. No mobile data coverage once in the bunker. There is also a cafe.
