If you’re crazy about aircraft, then don’t miss a chance to visit Volandia, the most important flight Park and Museum in Europe. Historic aircraft, flight simulators, a play area for children, a fun store offering loads of flight-themed objects and a “Flight Café”, all set in a welcoming atmosphere. A new 4000 sq.m. pavilion featuring exhibits dedicated to the largest aeronautical collection in the world, including the legendary Douglas DC-3, has just been opened. In addition to the above, visitors will now also have a chance to experience the thrill of piloting a hot air balloon using the museum’s new simulator. Volandia is situated just minutes from Malpensa airport (45 minutes from downtown Milan). From Tues to Fri, 10am-6pm; Sat-Sun and public holidays 10am-7pm.
