A beautiful museum with rare airplanes, explaining the history of portugese aviation. The staff is great, very helpful and knowledgable. Got a free tour of the entire museum, the guide let us visit the cockpits. The museum is a must for aviation enthusiasts.

Thank you for your comment and for your visit. Some days we have less visitors but it must have been a pure coincidence, because in 2017 we had more than 50 thousand visitors. Hope to see you again.

Thought it will be bigger and will have more modern era plans but it was nice anyway. Beautiful place for aircrafts lovers. Plans in a great condition. Little sad that not all of the descriptions are in English.

We went there with 7 y.o. kids and it was fun. It is cheap, just 3 euro and there are a lot of interesting planes. The museum is bright, clean and modern. We spent 1,5 hours there and would recommend it.
