My inspiration for this visit was two Hiyao Miyazaki films; Porco Rosso, which celebrates Italian aircraft design, and When the Wind Rises, a film about aircraft design in which Count Caproni appears. The museum is small but full of interesting exhu it's including a flight...More

This museum is dedicated to the brilliant areo engineer Gianni Caproni every one has seen his aircraft in films but never knew about him. It is not easy to get there but well worth a visit.

Quite small museum, but nice planes and well worth a visit. A plus for the plane simulators. It was very fun to simulate you in a world war 2 bomb plane!

Normally I'm an absolute sucker for Aviation museums - and Italian ones at that. But this one seemed a bit "strange". We asked for 2 tickets in quite broken Itallian and the chap asked if we had reservations which was a bit odd - but...More

Located at Trento airport the entrance fee allows a discount for Pensioners. Well set out and packed with very interesting exhibits of unique historical value. Very old items have been well restored and also some items presented as they were found. Really worth a visit.
