Aeronautics Museum

The Gianni Caproni Aeronautics Museum - where the dream of Icarus comes true

Dedicated to the Italian engineer Gianni Caproni, the Aeronautics Museum of Trento opened its doors in 1992 displaying a total of 17 historical aircrafts. The museum was originally founded in 1929 by Caproni himself, the Trentino aviation pioneer, but due to World War 2 it had to be closed for some years and rebuilt.

In addition to a rich variety of historical aircrafts, known as some of the rarest and most fascinating ones all over the world, the museum features numerous engines, pieces of zeppelins, propellers, a rich thematic library and a technical and photographic archive.

Every year, interactive astronomy exhibitions, air shows and airplane model exhibitions are scheduled in close collaboration with several aeronautic organisations and enterprises.

Currently, access may still be subject to certain restrictions.
