A free museum with a very good selection of military aircraft used by the Thai airforce. Some really well preserved exhibits, but some could do with a bit of TLC to bring them up to a more presentable state. (A job for enthusiastic cadets maybe?)...More

The museum is located on the opposite side of Don Muang airport. A taxi from there is an easy way to get there. There are buses too. The collection is very varied and there is a reasonable amount of information in English. Entry is free.
