Interesting spot. I had time on my hands waiting for a delayed flight and 7 euro burning a hole in my pocket, so I checked it out. The museum is a little light on presentation - most aircraft have identifying signs, but there are stacks of other extraneous whatnot like rocket pods and stripped engines stacked about. I thought it was pretty fascinating, though, and it’s a good thing that it was drizzling, otherwise I might have overstayed my visit and been late getting to my flight.

Opening times are posted, but the gate appears to be shut even during these. Just ring the buzzer and wait. Admission costs 7 euros for foreign visitors, 5 euros for locals.
