Explore a collection of over 50 military aircraft at Sweden Air Force Museum, and delve into complementary exhibits of engines, instruments, uniforms, literature, and photographs. The museum opened in 1984 on the former training field of the country's first flying school, which was opened by Sweden's first aviator Carl Cederström in 1912. Home to the sole surviving Junkers Ju 86 and a renowned DC-3 shot down in 1952, the museum also exhibits pioneer equipment in aviation such as an SK 1 Albatros, M 1 Nieuport, and B 1 Bréguet. The museum spans three levels with a small outdoor exhibit. On the upper level, learn firsthand about the modern JAS 39 Gripen, a single-engine multirole fighter aircraft, via flight simulators.

  • This museum holds many well-preserved war planes and a permanent exhibition with housing from various decades related to the cold war to put the plan into context. There are also games for children which, moreover, appreciate the opportunity to go into some aircraft.

  • Very good place to get to know swedish airforce history. There are several exhibitions and Fly Lab- perfect place for children and even for adults to play and experience diffrent aspects of aviation.
  • This is one of the best aviation museums around, with very nice and well thought out displays, and simulators allowing some hands on time for armchair pilots.
  • The most interesting part of the museum to me is the exhibitions of the story and recovery of DC-3; "Act of Secrecy".
  • A lot of airplanes, history of Swedish aviation represented in two huge halls. Museum workers happy to tell the story of showpieces.
  • This used to be one of those let's-pile-a-lot-of-planes-into-a-hangar-and-call-it-a-museum places, but with the permanent exhibition in the new wing providing context to the armed forces history, this is now one of the best museums I've ever visited.
