Aeroseum – Air Force History Museum

We finally visited the Aeroseum which is one of the most interesting museums in Gothenburg after so many years of living here. The museum is a huge subterranean hangar, where aircrafts were hidden at the beginning of the 1950’s. Since 1999 they decided to turn the place into a history museum.

A part of the entrance displayed pictures and items from the years when the place was being built. There was a long corridor where all the old aircrafts were being displayed. The museum was much more interesting than I thought it would be. As we continued, we saw some flight simulations for different type of aircrafts, which we loved trying out!

Although Sweden was neutral during the cold war, they let the US hide some submarines and defense materials to be prepared for any attack from Russia. This agreement was kept as a secret of the state until 1994. There were lots of espionage related items and information displayed as well.

I am so happy that I’ve seen the Aeroseum. I recommend it to everyone, even if you are not particularly interested in aircrafts. It can also be a good activity for families with kids.
