  • This museum is located in a bunker that was secret until the year 2003. It was built in the 50s and had its splendour in the cold war. Inside you can find all types of aircraft and helicopters, not only that they can get the majority. There are also various games and simulators for children. It is a stunning place, walking all the time by the bunker logically under the ground. It is located close to the Centre of Gothenburg, but surely you should go by car. We did that. It is great!

  • A great day out for the family- fun for all ages! You walk down into the hangar, carved out of the rock in the 1950's and kept secret until 2003, passing aircraft such as Saab fighter jets, Chinooks and Huey helicopters. Once you reach the main hangar, there are plenty of hands-on activities to keep everyone entertained. You can sit in a Saab Viggen or Draken jet, or even clamber through one with the engine removed (if you're short enough!). There's a winch where you can be "rescued" by a coastguard "helicopter", and pilot training games as well as some full on flight simulators (extra SEK50 for 15 mins). There's lot's of information on the Cold War and spying too, with a fun exhibit where you have to try and find the spy cameras hidden in a room. The atmosphere is casual, informative but not full-on, and not at all eery as you might expect, although bring a jumper as it can be chilly underground even when the sun is shining on the airfield above. The café is a cheap, casual affair with hot drinks, cakes and hot food. Nothing gourmet with hamburgers for SEK30, but they had a microwave and didn't seem to mind me eating my own lunch with my coffee. It is best suited for native Swedish speakers, with tours once a day at weekends, although I picked up a self-guided tour leaflet which was available in English and other languages including Polish. Lots of the information on the displays was also written in English. If you have time afterwards and the weather is nice, on your way out head left outside up to the viewpoint where you can look out over Säve airport.
  • Large collection of Swedish aero industry. Some still working, what you can see during the airshow.
  • Cool airplane museum inside the mountain in a bunker. Many interactive exhibitions. You can sit in several planes and helicopters.
  • It is unbeliveable that whole airbase could be hidden under the rock. Former Sweden air force base changed into the museum. You can find there Sweden planes,simulators and everything what is connected with flying or with this base.
  • Great museum if you like airplanes, or Swedish Military. The visit is pretty cheap, there is a free parking inside which makes it much easier. It's about 20-30 min away from Gothenburg but really to access by car. I would recommend a visit there with family (you can be in some planes) or with friends. Visited July 2015
