A beautiful museum with rare airplanes, explaining the history of portugese aviation. The staff is great, very helpful and knowledgable. Got a free tour of the entire museum, the guide let us visit the cockpits. The museum is a must for aviation enthusiasts.

Thought it will be bigger and will have more modern era plans but it was nice anyway. Beautiful place for aircrafts lovers. Plans in a great condition. Little sad that not all of the descriptions are in English.

We went there with 7 y.o. kids and it was fun. It is cheap, just 3 euro and there are a lot of interesting planes. The museum is bright, clean and modern. We spent 1,5 hours there and would recommend it.
