Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

For anyone who wants a great day out from Stockholm this is definately the thing to do.

Depending on the train you catch the journey to Linkoping can take from 1.5 to 2.5 hours. However the trains in Sweden run on time and are very clean and comfortable, though not cheap. The train journey passes easily with some magnificant countryside to view.

As well as the museum there is the town, which is a lovely Swedish town where the center of town has really nice cafe's and parks to walk around.

The museum itself is a short bus or taxi ride from the station. It has a large number of aircraft from the dawn of aviation right through to the latest aircraft in use in the Swedish Airforce.

There are a number of very rare types of aircraft including Junkers 86, Gloster Gladiator and lots of home grown Saab types and Fiat CR 42. The musuem has two main halls cramed with aircraft, many of which are in airworthy condition and were flown at the museums opening.

If you are in any way interested in aviation, then this museum can show you something you have not seen before. It is without doubt one of the very best that I have ever seen.
