Perfect option for families with children. Plenty of planes in different categories, like military, trainer or agricultural aircrafts. Also a helicopter (enterable), which John Paul II traveled by.

Nice place, lot of old aircraft. MiG/Suchoj and some Tupolevs. Good idea to go during the day when there is a lot of light (especially through the winter season). The simulator is often broke.

Nice exhibition of mostly soviet aircrafts. Cold war exhibit comparing NATO and Warsaw pact is especially interesting.
