A visit to Bodo needs to include the aviation museum. This is the centre for all aviation in Norway. The local airport is a NATO designated location and you may see F16 jets flying around here !!

A really great aviation museum which puts aviation into the context of social development exceptionally well. With separate civil and military sections, and plenty of aircraft to look at - and occasionally get in. There are enough back stories to provide interest for all. There's even the old Bodo control tower, still looking out over the airfield. Well worth a... More

Creative way of diplaying pieces of norwegian airforce history. I didn't expect a place that large with so many items in it. They have a control tower with a reproduction of the board and a natural shape wax figure. Totally worth visiting. Also, there is another entrance of a simulator room. You can choose what king of plane you want... More

We had a short stop in Bodo from our Hurtigruten ship. We decided to go to this museum. Part was closed, but the military side was open. Very well displayed and variety of planes and informative about military planes and use in WWII in particular. Well worth a visit. Situated about 4 kilometers outside town a good 20 minutes brisk...

Tight and handsome display of Norwegian Airforce history. Possible to eat home cooked "old fashioned" food in the restaurant.

I am not into planes at all but decided to visit on a recent trip to Bodø. So glad I did as this museum is amazing!!! The civil side was closed when i visited but the military side was more than enough. So many planes and in amazing condition. I cannot recommend enough.

The largest Aircraft museum in Europe! Only the military half is open at the moment, but it's fantastic. Dozens of full size aircraft half of the hanging off the ceiling. All the explanations are in English, and it tells you everything about Bodo's involvement in all the wars. Massive. Must visit the Control (old) Tower at the top of the... More

Unfortunately time limitations cut our visit short. The displays are fantastic with explanations in multiple languages. The layout allows a full view of the aircraft and supporting equipment. Dioramas are well done and located adjacent to the applicable aircraft. The civilian aviation side of the museum was closed for renovation limiting the experience. If you are in Bodo on a... More

This is a museum where you can spend quite a long time. Lots of explanations, informations, models, real airplanes, sets (they even show the log cabin Norwegian aviators used in Canada and a German plane having crashed in the mountains). Even if one wing was closed for refurbishment (it contains a U-2) theere was plenty to see.

This place is so well done and such a surprise for me to show my family from Paris, since i didnt know it either and grew up with plane and history in my home town Bodø. The civilian part was close to maintenance and we spent such a long time to explain the situation of evolution, atomic threats and war... More
