Travelled by 202 or 203 from Mdina- ask driver to let you off at crafts village. Follow signs and you'll reach the museum (12-15min walk) - 3 large hangars full of fascinating things to see and read. This museum is a hidden gem I felt...More

The DH has been a member of a restoration team for a Halifax bomber, so this seemed like a winning idea. It did not disappoint. There are lots of airplanes and displays. It is not what you'd call a "world class" museum, but for the...More

Very good, and don't miss out out by looking behind the end hangar where they had two Huey's (German registered). Did not get the two registrations of the two cockpits directly outside (to the side) the main entrance, but a good morning well spent.

Well worth a visit, more so for us as we had complementary tickets but that meant we were able to buy a DVD and donate. Lots of exhibits and no annoying guides so we could spend several hours walking around. There isn't much left in...More

I am an aviation enthusiast and self-confessed aeroplane geek. This museum was excellent, with an interesting array of aeroplanes in different stages of restoration. The histories behind the aircraft on display, the personal histories of the men that fought and died flying them, and the...More
