Flygvapenmuseum, the Swedish Air Force Museum, is a modern technical and cultural history museum with exhibitions that trace the development of military aviation from the pioneers of the early 20th century to the present. It offers a unique collection of aircrafts, many of which can only be seen at the Swedish Air Force Museum.

The DC-3 – one of the main attractions

Perhaps the most spectacular object in the collection is the Swedish DC-3, an aircraft that was a shot down by a Soviet fighter aircraft in 1952. More than fifty years later the DC-3 was found, salvaged and put to its final resting place here at the museum.

Become pilot for a day in the Flight Lab

Flygvapenmuseum is a place where knowledge and play come together in a natural way. The museum’s science centre, the Flight Lab, features flight simulators and experimental stations on the theme of flying. Become a pilot for a day and sit behind the controls of the flight simulator – like flying for real!

Something for everyone

In addition to the permanent exhibitions Flygvapenmuseum features two to three different temporary exhibitions per year. The museum also have exciting programmes all year long. The calendar has something for everyone, from interesting lectures to guided views for children during which the younger museum guests accompany our mascots Drakel and Viggo in exploring the museum.
