Trip Planner: Europe / Italy / Trentino-Alto Adige / Province of Trento / Trento / Museo dell'Aeronautica Gianni Caproni
The Gianni Caproni Museum of Aeronautics is Italy's oldest aviation museum, as well as the country's oldest corporate museum. It was established in 1927 as the Caproni Museum by Italian aviation pioneer and aeronautical engineer, Giovanni Battista "Gianni" Caproni and his wife, Timina Guasti Caproni.
The museum was originally located in Taliedo, in the suburbs of Milan. The aircraft in the collection were moved to Venegono Superiore during World War II, and the exhibition was reopened in Vizzola Ticino in the 1960s. At the end of the 1980s, the museum moved to its present location. The current museum building, 5km south of Trento and adjacent to the Trento Airport, was opened on 3 October 1992.

Museo dell'Aeronautica Gianni Caproni Reviews
My husband is a world war I & II buff and found it very interesting as did I. Layed out very nicely and lots in English more »
Recommended for aviation lovers. Museum is small, lot of historical planes. You can also test your skills on 2 flight simulators, no crowds - reasonable ticket prices more »
Good idea for "a rainy day" activity, expect max 2 hours
Not easy to find and not a lot if aircraft to see. Very very hot as heating on and very dry. Not a great deal translated to English but I guess it's an Italian product museum.
