Overview
More
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!

Don’t forgot to include this place in your plan list and the story of DC-3 is a very good attraction

Very interesting! A large collection of the Swedish airforce's airplanes, all in good condition. The guided tour is recommended if you want to know more details. The best part was the flight simulator though, book in advance!

Here you can go around and see some of the rarest and most historical air force planes. I recommend paying around 16€ for the flight simulator, which gives you an experience of what it feels like to fly in JAS-39 jet fighter. Oh, and you'll...More

Great museum for adult and kids. Many planes from the early Bréguet to the latest Gripen fighter jet. The Cold War exposition is particularly awesome. Great playground for small kids outside and interactive activities for bigger children inside. And it is for free.
