Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present.

It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum. Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum.

Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum's science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator - like flying for real!

We took the bus from Linkoping and it dropped us right outside. I am not into looking at old aircraft but I found enjoyed this museum. It was well set out and the descriptions about the planes were detailed. I loved the "Animals in War" section. The recovered DC3, which was shot down by the Soviets, was fascinating.

Very nice museum where you can see the more part of the aircrafts used by the swedish air force. Big and comprehensive with a well designed children's area. If you like to know how it feels to fly a modern fighter you can try the Gripen simulator.

Linkoping is a nice city to visit and the airforce museum a real bonus. Many unique exhibits, the Swedish aircraft industry has been pretty impressive over the years. The museum is well laid out and informative. The Saab viggen was the high point for me I saw one as a child when visiting Sweden and never forgot the sight and... More

A great place even for those only mildly interested in aircrafts. Many unique exhibits, interactive activities, interesting Cold War exhibition and another one about the story of a Swedish aircraft shot down by the Soviets and a very cool one about animals in wars. And best of all it's for free. I recommend it for everyone, not only families with... More

This museum has many things to offer. Both historical and new aeroplanes. The basement with The extra ordinary DC3 is something extra with its incredible history. Many things for all ages to do and Explorer. Including god food.

The collection spans decades of Swedish air force aircraft, and boasts an impressive assembly of airplanes and helicopters for anything from regular air force missions to search and rescue operations. Several time capsules have been installed to give an impression of life and the sense of 'war' or urgency at different times in the late 20th century, providing an excellent... More
