Took an uber to visit this museum while in Sintra, not a huge exposition but definitively interesting and oriented towards Portuguese history of aviation. An employee , Mr Correra ,saw me struggle to understand the posters (written in Portuguese) come randomly and gave me an hour tour of the museum with a lot of info , had a great talk about aviation with him!

Thought it will be bigger and will have more modern era plans but it was nice anyway. Beautiful place for aircrafts lovers. Plans in a great condition. Little sad that not all of the descriptions are in English.

We went there with 7 y.o. kids and it was fun. It is cheap, just 3 euro and there are a lot of interesting planes. The museum is bright, clean and modern. We spent 1,5 hours there and would recommend it.

I rated it as very good, mostly because we have no better one in Portugal... If compared with others all over the world, it is just average. TAP, the Portuguese airline is very well represented there, with a permanent exhibition. Everything from seats to uniforms is on display. To me the highlight is a DC3, that before belonging to TAP, had a very interesting past, including participating on D-day, dropping para-troopers over Normandy. It's interior is now restored, all thanks to volunteers. Several military aircrafts are on display, and mush is told about the colonial war fought in Africa. The admission price is very cheap. Some pieces can only be visited inside with the presence of a military person, and that is very annoying. The museum clearly is short on staff.
