Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present. It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum. Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum. Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum's science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator - like flying for real!

Got a tip from my dad to visit this museum and especially to try the JAS 39 Gripen flight simulator. Well now I did and I certainly do not regret it. The collection of airplanes is impressive and the DC3 exhibition is worthy of a...More

We took a detour on our way to Stockholm to see this museum. We were particularly interested in Sweden's role in World War II. There wasn't much information about that. But we did learn about a very interesting Cold War incident called the Catalina affair....More

Impressive collection of warplanes from the early 20th Century up to modern times.The hangers are not well lit which is a shame, but well worth a few hours to wonder around.

One of the best military aviation museums i've been to. Great mix of historic and modern airplanes, and a really interesting exhibition on the DC3 incident. Great for both adults and kids.
