  • 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.
