  • There was a place and the area newly established though it was under construction of the renewal now and it put it in. It is reopened on August 1, and the entrance fee of 500 yen seems to become 700 yen now. The entrance where the construction was finished was more modern than before. From the 5th floor, you can see the departure and departure of Narita Airport A runway. I visited a lot of time. The view was good and quiet because there was only one uncle who was looking while listening to the air band on the fifth floor after noon on weekdays.

  • I went out with my children, but the children seemed to enjoy the outdoor exhibition. There is also a real-life exhibition in the building, and there is also a shop for aviation goods. You can also watch the aircraft arrive and depart, so you won't get tired of a few hours.

  • Fantastic museum, I will most certainly be returning here. Very interesting for aviation fans like myself, so many things to see and learn. Observation deck is fantastic, great for viewing heavy departures/arrivals. Aircraft outside the museum are very interesting too, some aircraft still had moving yokes within the cockpit. Great experience. Awesome selection of model aircraft too, available to purchase.
  • Very enjoyable place to visit with young kids. Outside there are selection of small aircraft you can enter, sit in cockpit etc. Great views of aircraft landing and taking off too.
