Owner description: Take a look around you - the walls are steeped in history, dreams and the future. You are at Volandia, where a wonderful exhibition itinerary takes you deep into the history of international aeronautics, with focus on the companies that have written the story of the province of Varese, the province with wings, and all of Lombardy and Italian industry.The exhibition is divided into five areas: forms of flight, fixed wing, rotary wing, model aircraft and the convertiplane. It tells the great history of flight in all its forms, from pioneer flights in hot-air balloons to the first aircraft in the early 1900s right through to the convertiplane, the perfect fusion of vertical and horizontal flight.The Park and Museum of Flight has plenty of indoor and outdoor areas for children, with space dedicated to the different age brackets. For older visitors there is the simulation area, library, historical archives (consultable online), convention room and film showings.The Volandia Store stocks a wealth of park and museum gifts and mascots and many other wonderful articles.As you walk around the park and museum you can listen to exciting adventures involving the aircraft on show told by volunteers of the “Friends of Volandia” association, whose members include fanatics and former workers at the aircraft companies. If you would like to join the association, just ask.. Members are easy to recognise in their red uniform.The Flight Café is the perfect place to take a break and have something to eat and drink.Volandia makes flight dreams and fun happen.Visit our website to discover our pavillon and the newly SPACE AREA.
