  • I wish we could go into, at least, some of the airplanes. That's one of the minuses. Otherwise, it is a relaxing, windy experience to see various kinds of warplanes and some other relevant vehicles. The cafe is small and limited but it works. It is operated by Turkish Air Forces personnel. Oh in the enclosed section, there is some historical stuff. I am not sure if some information is mythological or real.
  • Very nice and clean museum. Unfortunately the martyrs section is not written in English. Would be great if entering some big and old planes is allowed!
  • An awesome gem for aviation lovers. I do hope it doesnt get forgotten with airport being moved. The workers and the aviation store were amazing. I could shop in that store all day. Great job Turkey!
  • Great place to see the Turkish Aviation History. The museum has some jet engines simulators. Even engineers should go and visit. Even in 1930s Turkey was an exporter of some of these Turkish made airplanes.
  • Nice museum, good conetcion to reach the place with metro.
