Lovely collection of items and technique, related to the history of Lithuanian aviation.
If you like planes, this is very interesting place to spend time. There are multiple real planes, jet engines to touch, inspect and learn about their history. I really recommend it, just avoid plane simulation, the simulation part is OK, but the person who is responsable for that is very rude, that basically ruined half of the experience.
