Housed behind a shimmering facade of mirrored glass in a futuristic, donut-shaped building, the Belgrade Museum of Aviation is one of the city’s most impressive museums. Inside, the vast permanent collection features dozens of aircraft, including planes, drones, and even hot-air balloons, formerly owned by the Yugoslav Air Force.
Visitors to the Belgrade Museum of Aviation, most of whom visit independently and buy tickets at the door, can browse the indoor and outdoor exhibition areas, as well as take a turn in a Boeing 737 Simulator. Highlights include an original Yak-3, parts of a fallen F-117 Nighthawk, two Russian Kamov helicopters, and World War II planes including a Supermarine Spitfire Mk V and an Ilyushin Il-2 Sturmovik.
The Belgrade Museum of Aviation is a must for aircraft enthusiasts and popular with children.
Experiencing the simulator costs an additional fee, and booking in advance is recommended.
Some of the exhibitions are translated into English, but some information is in Serbian only.
The museum has a gift shop and café.
The Belgrade Museum of Aviation is located next to Nikola Tesla International Airport, about a 10-minute walk from the arrival and departure terminals. To get to the airport from the city, a 40-minute journey, take bus 72 from Zeleni Venac or a taxi. Parking is available on-site.
The museum is open Tuesday through Sunday all year round, from morning to late afternoon. Thanks to its proximity to the airport, many travelers opt to visit on arrival in Belgrade or just before departure.
