It was just me and staff so I had the whole place pretty much to myself. If you're into antique planes especially from WWII, it's a must. A good stop if you have the time to step back into the past with these planes.

Obviously the Spitfire and the Hurricane are the main draw to this museum, but there's quite literally tonnes of other great exhibits. Situated next door to the Ta Qali National Stadium it is easily accessible by public transport, as well as on the hop on,...More

The Malta Aviation Musem may be small in scale but the volunteers and staff have clearly worked very hard to pack as much in the way of exhibits and information into their neatly laid out hangars as possible. We found more than enough to see...More
