Reviewed 4 May 2014

We have been really satisfied with the collection of planes we saw. There are really many of them. Astonishing. The building itself needs renovation, but there is no money we heard. We missed a shop with souvenirs, maybe some playground (with planes) for children, simulators etc. But this also depends on maney. Pitty. This is a private museum and the state doesn't give them any money. What a shame for such a beautiful museum.

I wandered around the airport during a stop of my flight and came upon this wonderful museum. The exhibits are beyond interesting and are for sure to give you something to remember. Even though it's not that big of a museum it took me about one and a half hours to explore everything. However, the building itself is in a bad shape and someone might notice that the exhibits may not be preserved the way they should. Moreover, there were no signs in English so I couldn't understand anything for the beauties that I was staring at.

The museum as your probably aware is at the airport and is just a 5-10 minute stroll from arrivals/departures. I travelled from central Belgrade on the A1 bus from outside the railway station. Only 300 dinar but it can get crowded as it's only a small bus. Takes about half an hour from the centre to the airport. At the museum you can stroll around some of the outdoor exhibits but you will not be able to get to the many aircraft that are stored in the compound adjacent to the museum, you can only view these from inside. Admission fee was 500 dinar which is a bargain for what you get. The aircraft are displayed around the inside of the circular and unusual building both on the floor and suspended from the ceiling but don't worry as the upper level gives a very good view of these particular airframes as well as looking down on the ground floor examples. Lots of smaller displays concerning Yugoslav/ Serbian aviation especially the airline JAT. Take time to look at the remains and display of the shot down American F16 and the Nighthawk stealth fighter during the Balkan conflict in the 90's. Amazing what an old SAM missile can do. Museum has a small shop and restaurant but be patient as one lady runs both locations. If your into aviation this is a must see location. Don't miss it, make time. Ideal prior to an afternoon flight allow at least an hour and a half. No restrictions or additional costs for the use of a camera either. Had a great time.

This museum is located at Belgrade airport - a 5ish min walk from the terminal (Leave the terminal - through an underpass - turn left - straight on a few hundred yards - cross road and its on the right behind a multi story car park - can't miss it - huge circular blue glass building !)

One can roam around outside for free - there are an eclectic collection of aircraft (A MiG 21 - well which Eastern European Aviation museum doesn't have a Mig 21) a JU52 transport a DC3 and some helicopters.

We ventured inside and were met by a very friendly chap - perfect English - who offered to store our bags (We had just arrived from the UK) and chatted about how we were finding Serbia etc and and introduced the museum).

The Museum is in 2 levels (and has another Mig 21). Star exhibit is part of the F117 shot down during the NATO bombing campaign - as well as the tail of an F16 and a predator drone.

WW2 aircraft include a Me109, Hurricane, Spitfire, Thunderbolt and IL-2 Sturmovik and there are numerous post war Yougoslav Jets, missiles and a TPS1 Radar (Very impressive for radar geeks)

All in all as air museums go this is excellent - lots of information in English ( a bit of a novelty) and the aircraft are all in Excellent state of repair. Only (very small) negative is there are some interesting looking cold war jets in a field one can't get to look at - but a very small moan. There is a small souvenir shop too.

In summary a fantastic museum well worth the 5 min walk from the terminal.

An unusual place to visit in that it sits on the outskirts of the Nikola Tesla Airport and is chock full of aircraft from WW! through to the 1990s. A number of old and some wrecked aircraft sit outside.
Well worth a look at little cost if you are an aircraft buff !
