Very nice aviation museum. Excellent and informative displays. Especially the DC-3 display and the cold war era sections. Even if you're not into aviation this museum is well worth a visit.

This was my first trip here in a lot of years, the entire museum was rebuilt and there was a lot more new to test and watch in the exhibition. If you are interested in history, this is for sure one of the best museums to visit in this area, also for technical people this is very good. I was very impressed of the newest part of the museum, which was divided into decades of how it was and looked in homes in Sweden.

Great place, well worth a visit

The Swedish Air Force Museum, just outside Linkoping, is a real find. This is an up-to-date modern museum, not just a musty collection of dusty airplanes. Swedish aircraft from biplanes through modern supersonic jets are displayed, with the accent on the Cold War Era. In the basement is an impressive display of a crashed C-47 that the Soviets shot down in 1953, as well as interesting narratives and displays that tell the story of the shoot-down. There is an excellent cafe, and we had a great lunch there too. There is an extensive gift shop with models and books about Swedish aviation that you won't find anywhere else.

The Swedish Air Force museum has a large collection of well preserved planes that have served the Swedish Airforce. The museum was recently expanded and refurbished. It is a very nice museum by international standards and one of the best in Sweden. The museum caters for all ages and has aviation related attractions for children as well as adults. The display of planes impresses in the way the planes are presented. Lighting and the atmosphere gives you a nice experience. There are guided tours available but I toured the museum on my own. I spent 1,5 hours looking at all the planes. Even if spent my time just looking at the nice planes you can by also following the guided tours get an impression of how the Swedish Air Force dealt with the cold war and see how it has developed and also get an historical perspective not just related to aviation. The museum succeeds in giving an experience broader than just looking at old planes. All in all I was surprised in the quality of the display. They spent a lot of money on this museum it seems. If you are not an aviation enthusiast maybe you should just visit the museum when driving through the area. I think the whole family will enjoy the visit. Spend a few hours and eat something in the pretty basic restaurant as a stop when driving through. This is a perfect stop on a longer drive through Sweden when you are in the area anyway. For the aviation enthusiast a visit at this museum is a must.

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.
