The Aviation Museum reviews
Def. worth a trip if you like airplanes, and history. Just try to imagine flying in Iceland weather with very little resources and your chances of survival in a crash?? more »
We loved this museum. It is, of course, not comparable with, for example, the one in Washington DC, but it is really nice. more »
The Aviation Museum is located at the airport. There are a lot of planes that are connected to Iceland or Icelandic airlines in some way. Interestingly, small planes (2-3 seats) are all fully functioning. Even those produced in 1937. The museum keeper tells us that he flies them periodically. One Cessna even belongs to him
Better than expected!! We went out of season and found the responsible there. We asked him if it was closed and he said: "yes. But you are welcome". We really appreciated the opportunity of visit. The Fokker F-27 is impressive, and the rest of the airplanes have its own history. The majority are still capable to fly!! I think it is a remarkable and different visit that anyone will enjoy; you don't need to be a freak of airspace!!
