  • 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!!
