Swedish Air Force Museum

The Swedish Air Force Museum is a modern technical and cultural history museum tracing the development of Swedish military aviation. The museum has a unique collection of aircraft, from pioneers of the early 20th century to the present day JAS 39 Gripen.

Please note that due to rebuilding, some parts of the museum are closed. 

Experience the thought-provoking exhibition “Expecting the worst – Sweden during the Cold War.” Follow the development of the welfare state in nostalgic home settings. Make sure you have plenty of time to visit the museum cellar where you can explore the dramatic history of the Swedish reconnaissance plane that was shot down, in the exhibition “Acts of secrecy – the DC-3 that disappeared”.

The restaurant and café Calle C usually serves lunch 11:00–14:00 and coffee at other times. It’s not allowed to bring food or drink into the museum premises. If you have brought a picnic, you can eat it outdoors at the picnic tables.

The museum shop stocks ingenious gifts, designer products, toys, aviation literature and model aircraft. If you like to read and want to find out more, visit our knowledge centre with archives and a special library on aviation history.
