Krakow

Polish Aviation Museum

  Al. Jana Pawła II 39 (Czyżyny) ,   No District          (+48) 12 642 87 00     26 Sep 2019

Located on one of the oldest military airfields in Europe, this oft-overlooked, but highly regarded museum holds a premier collection of aircraft, artefacts and exhibits related not only to Polish, but world aviation history and heritage. The new exhibition building is bursting with interactive exhibits, a cinema, library, museum shop and extensive collection of historic aircraft (including a permanent exhibit of WWI aircraft). The original exhibits in the airfield’s numerous hangars and out-buildings still remain stuffed with old photographs, engines, uniforms and plenty more airplanes, helicopters and gliders, while the yards surrounding them are literally littered Russian-built fighter jets from the days of the Warsaw Pact. While it’s disappointing that many of the displays are in Polish only, this is still a great outing (Dads love it) that can take the better part of a day to explore thoroughly. Located in the no-mans-land between the city centre and Nowa Huta, to get there take tram 52 from 'Dworzec Główny' (the train station) to 'Muzeum Lotnictwa.'

My wife and I toured Nowa Huta Polish Aviation Museum in June of 2001. We were given a short tour by one of the museum directors who knew enough English for us to understand what he was showing us. The collection of planes is most impressive because the museum has many planes unheard of in the West. Sometimes there were prototypes (one of a kind), other times there were popular and important models. Many Eastern bloc representatives there I think.I have never been in another air museum like that one. If you get a chance to go to Poland, make a point to get to Nowa Huta.
