  • Incredible experience! Highly recommended for any history buff.
  • 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.
  • A good place to see a bit of swedish air force history! You can even sit in some jet fighters!
  • 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.
  • Very interactive museum. Great collection of aircrafts. But it would have been nice to have a guided tour option in both swedish and English.
