The Aviation Museum was founded no sooner than 1990, despite the fact the idea of setting up a venue of this kind first occurred in the early 20th century, and promoted by the great historian Nicolae Iorga.

At present, the museum fills a surface of 60,000 square meters, and some of its most prized collections refer to the ones which retrace the contribution of Aurel Vlaicu and Henri Coandă to the history of the Romanian aviation. The museum boasts of the uniqueness and amplitude of these collections, but the museological asset is much wider. There are plenty of collections of photography (consisting of hundreds of exhibits) which present the history of the Romanian aviation. There’s also a wealth of models, motors, personal effects, letters, patents, radars and even airplanes which provide visitors with the opportunity to make a comprehensive picture of the entire historical trajectory of the Romanian aviation.
