  • There's nothing so remarkable about it, but if you like airplanes, you might want to go. When i went there, it was a south wind operation, but at the time of the north wind, it seems to be able to worship the landing aircraft as such in a smartphone. Personally, the goods shop was good. Electronic money settlement was OK.

  • If you like airplanes, you'll enjoy it. It happened on the day we went there, but it was free and full of children. Adults alone can enjoy seeing the exhibits and watching the take-off and landing of airplanes in the observatory. It was crowded, but the paid simulator seemed to be real and enjoyable.

  • Fantastic museum, I will most certainly be returning here. Very interesting for aviation fans like myself, so many things to see and learn. Observation deck is fantastic, great for viewing heavy departures/arrivals. Aircraft outside the museum are very interesting too, some aircraft still had moving yokes within the cockpit. Great experience. Awesome selection of model aircraft too, available to purchase.
  • Very enjoyable place to visit with young kids. Outside there are selection of small aircraft you can enter, sit in cockpit etc. Great views of aircraft landing and taking off too.
