I have visited the museum with children on our last day in Malta. The museum is very nice. Kids loved it. Lots of old planes and other vehicles. I like the little cafe and chapel. We went inside the old plane cockpit. Is in good location between stadium and crafts village. I would recommend to anyone especially aviation lovers.

This was the 1 place my plane mad son wanted to visit whilst on holiday and it didn't disappoint. We had spent the morning elsewhere and decided last minute to go. Bus took us direct to the museum using 186 from Buggiba stopping outside at Stadium stop. Staff were very friendly and the cost of admission was reasonable. There are... More

Visited and loved it! I've done the major British museums (Duxford, Hendon, IWM Lambeth, Science Museum etc) and lots of he smaller UK ones and though some have larger or more important collections this museum has so much character and charm and tells lots of smaller stories with exhibits that get ignored elsewhere. It also had the best quality models... More

Was really impressed with the work being done here, my mum was a wartime Wren and had a particular fondness for the "stringbag" delighted to see they have one here, hope the funds are soon raised to restore this.

We visited the Malta Aviation Museum on a spur of the moment decision and weren't disappointed. It is a charming, little museum full of interesting artefacts and planes from Malta's aviation past. Our toddler son enjoyed looking at the aircraft as did his grandparents! Something to suit all ages. It was a real eye opener to discover more about war... More

This has certainly grown since my last visit about ten years ago when it was just the Spitfire being restored and the volunteers are to be congratulated on what they have achieved. Although the Spitfire is still the star there is now so much of interest and a good variety of historic aircraft to see as well as improved visitor... More

Small but a fun place to visit even though some very interesting stories have tragic outcomes. A fine tribute to some amazing people.

Smashing museum on one of the WW2 air sites. There is an ongoing restoration programme for old planes etc, so it is a working museum, the exhibits on display are excellent. The hanger with the Spitfire and Hurricane in it is amazing and we thought a little moving bearing in mind what this tiny island went through during a terrible... More

They explain you every bit of detail and history of each maschine with such an enthusiasm. We were there with three boys under 12 years and we hardly got them out of this... More
