Polish Aviation Museum, Cracow

Polish Aviation Museum, Cracow

In the Polish Aviation Museum, children will be interested to view historic airplanes, gliders and helicopters. They also will explore the history of the first human attempts to get into air, the further development of aviation, especially the history of Polish aviation. They can peek inside the helicopter used by John Paul II and see its renovated interior. They will surely be excited to see the cockpit. The Museum is also worth visiting during the annual Aviation Picnic. This is an occasion to see historic and modern aircraft and shows with the participation of re-enactment groups, parachuting, and above all, aerial acrobatics. The Picnic includes an amusement park, food kiosks, exhibit booths and commercial stands. You can rent the Museum to hold a birthday party. Organised groups can participate in school and kindergarten children’s workshops. Polish Aviation Museum was founded in the former Rakowice-Czyżyny military airport hangars - one of the oldest permanent airfields in Europe. Its great advantage is to enable the visitors to view old aircraft in the hangars of the former airport. Some exhibits are located in the open air. Walking among the huge machines, especially on a nice day, is pure pleasure.
