Great museum, lots of different planes and really interesting information in both English and Norwegian. For many of the planes you can actually go on them! Great photo op's!

Museum has a great collection of different planes. Both agent and more recent models. Commercial, private and war models. Not too easy to find if you are not looking for it.
