There is a bus stop immediately outside the museum. We travelled from Sliema by local bus without any difficulty. It is nice to have a museum where aircraft are not roped off and you can walk under wings. The museum also undertakes restoration work and...More

Fairly small, but has a nice collection of historical planes. I like how they wrote historical data on the particular aircraft displayed. Some bigger museums could learn from it.

Hop on Hop off bus stops right outside. Museum shows a variety of aircraft used during the war, several displays of uniforms past and present and an explanation to go with each.

A very small museum but considering how difficult it must have been to collect all these planes and bring them back to their former glory, the visit is well worth it. The collection is much more interesting than what the War Museum in Valetta offers.

Not really worth the visit, especially if you are traveling by bus. The main exhibits are a Spitfire and a Hurricane.

What a wonderful place for any enthusiast of WW2 aircraft. One thing i dont understand is why they do not have the preserved fuselage of Gloster Gladiator "Faith"here instead of at the St Elmo War museum. Spitfires and hurricanes delivered by aircraft carriers in 1942...More

The Malta Aviation Museum is obviously a labor of love by local airplane enthusiasts. Located next to a former RAF airfield, the collection of airplanes is housed in 3 hangars with room for more. A few other small buildings, such as a WW2-style canteen and...More

Somehow I would doubt it, the islanders are very religious and Easter is a very devout catholic festival.
