Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków

Polish Aviation Museum in Kraków

Housed in the former Kraków-Rakowice-Czyżyny Airport, the Polish Aviation Museum (Muzeum Lotnictwa Polskiego) was opened to the public in 1964. Nowadays, it is one of the largest aircraft museums in the world. 


The Museum features a large collection of aircrafts and motors that are strategically distributed throughout the airport’s old runways and hangers. The exhibitions reflect how the aviation has developed since it was first created.

Visitors will come across real aviation gems such as gliders, anti-aircraft weaponry, state-of-the-art fighter jets, aircrafts built for World War I, World War II and the Cold War. There are also interesting uniforms and various documents belonging to the Polish Air Force.   


The Polish Aviation Museum is one of world’s best museums of its type. Visitors interested in aviation will find it fascinating. The only down side is that the building is in the outskirts, so it takes some time to get there, and it will take at least a couple hours to explore it.
