The Museum, formed in 1963, houses exhibits connected with world aviation technology in its rich collections of world-class significance. It includes aeroplanes, gliders, helicopters, anti-aircrafts rockets and aircraft engines.
The Museum also has the only remaining pre-war military aircraft: The PZLP.11c fighter, a participant in of the II World War, in September 1939, and the PWS 26 training aircraft. Alongside them are Polish tourist planes: the RWD 13 from 1935 and RWD 21 from 1939.
On the exhibition are also post-war Polish aircrafts as well as foreign- produced aircraft used by Polish aviators, both military and civilian. The Museum has examples of almost every type of jet fighter used by The Polish Air Force, including numerous Yaks, Iłs, Sus and MiGs (and their Polish licensed versions - Lims). There are also Polish and licensed helicopters and gliders, known in many countries throughout the world.
