Quite small museum, but nice planes and well worth a visit. A plus for the plane simulators. It was very fun to simulate you in a world war 2 bomb plane!

Located at Trento airport the entrance fee allows a discount for Pensioners. Well set out and packed with very interesting exhibits of unique historical value. Very old items have been well restored and also some items presented as they were found. Really worth a visit.
