This museum is fun for kids and adults as well. It could be a bit more organized (in how to go about and in signing) to deserve the 'great' rating. We loved the art with very vivid airplane scenes though!

A great selection of aircraft and exhibits to view and in some cases (eg, the 747) access. Well laid out and organised. Friendly knowledgable staff who all spoke English. I would have given a full 5 had it not been for the lack of English...More

Lots of historic planes as from the beginning of Dutch aviation up to a Boeing 747. You will eventually leave the Museum already planning your next visit

The docents and volunteers all speak English and they're more than happy to tell you all about the displays. Many of the displays inside you have to guess at, though there are some English explanations.
