Vast and interesting collection
May 2018 • Solo
Interesting museum with a cool collection of air planes – small and big, war and civil, old and new... Most of them are with swastika. If you are interested in the war epoch you will find a lot of cool and fascinating things there to enjoy!

Great guided tour
May 2018 • Business
The museum is lovely, with some one-off and first-rate examples of aircraft. A great, historical account of the Finnish Air Force. Whilst there are plenty of information boards in Finnish and English for each piece, we were shown round by a guide in English which was excellent and really added more context to some of the display items with more of a story.
Excellent 3 hours spent and only about 15km north of Jyvaskyla town.

Great place to visit

When you arrive at the museum, you can already see some aircraft from the war and other stuff outside but when you go inside, you couldn't imagine how many things they have been collecting from the war. I really liked this museum because it's well organized and the collection is pretty impressive. You have the main building and then you have also some things to see at the first floor on the sides of the building. There's also a little kiosk if you want do drink or eat something.
This museum is not far from the airport and around 15 km from the city center of Jyväskylä. It is easy to find.

Aviation history in Finland
Aug 2017 • Friends
I had been there already some 25 years ago but didn't remember that the place was so amazing! We spent 2 hours inside to explore the history of aviation in Finland, comparing motors, forms and wondering on how those things could fly?
excellent place to visit as well with children .

Very well built historic museum for aviation entusiasts
May 2017 • Friends
Here are many planes, bits and pieces that do not exist anywhere else in the world. Most planes are restored in "original" condition, rather than new like. We had an awesome guide.....

Nice place on a rainy day!
Jul 2016 • Couples
If you happen to have a rainy this is a nice olace to visit. Big hall with lots of planes. The only down side is that the museum is quite far from the city (about 20 km).

Rear collection of Finnish air force planes
Sep 2016 • Family
The museum recently changed its name to concentrate mainly on the Finnish air force. The museum is easy to find and is close to Jyvaskyla. Large parking area were they have placed some fighters and a Mi-8 helicopter outside for the summer seasons.
At the front there is a lobby with literature and a cafeteria. The exhibition hall is large and filled with interesting planes, history, pictures and a nice large collection of miniatures. The planes are set well to see and you can even try a seat of a cockpit from a Saab Draken, Mig 21 and a Saab Safir. There is plenty to see.
Very interesting are the famous planes from WW2. A Bristol Blenheim, Hawker Hurricane, Messerschmitt Bf109 and a rare Brewster F2.
