WS Aircraft Museum

About our Museum

Based in Campo Largo, metropolitan region of Curitiba-PR, the WS AIRCRAFT MUSEUM has an exclusive collection with aircraft that are part of the history of world aviation.

Our collection has civil and military aircraft used for training, cargo transport, executive transport and even used in combat at the time of World War II.

Team and Structure

Collection & Maintenance

To maintain its collection of fully operational aircraft, the WS AIRCRAFT MUSEUM has a highly specialized team.

The structure developed since 2015 has 15 aircraft and 2 hangars where assembly, renovations, repairs and maintenance are carried out.

 

Why do we do this?

With the desire to bring this culture to the public, which most of them do not have access to such an area, the WS AIRCRAFT MUSEUM is working to open its doors in the near future.
