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.'
