Time flies at the Aviation Museum

Relive Malta’s flight history at the Aviation Museum in Ta’ Qali. Established and maintained by dedicated volunteers, this unique site offers a view of Malta’s rich heritage that is often overlooked.

Indeed, Malta’s air-faring story is much more than the wartime Spitfire – though a beautifully restored 1942 exemplar is proudly on display, too.

You don’t have to be a aviation enthusiast to let your imagination fly as you admire the technical and strategic genius behind the aircraft in this fascinating collection.

The museum itself stands right on the grounds of the former Royal Air Force Aerodrome and is spread out across three hangars housing over 20 expertly reconstructed aircraft as well as an impressive selection of engines and other airfield equipment. Half a dozen more planes are currently under restoration.

Visitors are also treated to a superb permanent exhibition by the award-wining Maltese Society for Scale Modellers that puts them right into the historical context of the museum pieces.

The museum is open Monday to Sunday from 09:00 to 17:00. Between June and September, Sunday hours are until 13:00. For more information and updates visit
