The Finowfurt Aviation Museum is located on the west side of the Finow airfield. It is one of the largest private aviation museums in the new federal states. On a total area of approx. 23 ha visitors can see many original aircraft as well as an extensive technology and engine exhibition. This aviation museum at the original location of a former military airfield, first for the German Air Force and after 1945 for the Soviet Air Force, offers a direct encounter with the aviation history of Brandenburg. For more than 20 years, the aim of the museum's staff, most of whom are volunteers, has been to explore history and to establish a link between historical technical events and the concrete human destinies that go with them.

The old airplanes and shelters create a unique ambience in the nature of the Märkische Heide, which is very attractive for private individuals, families with children, school classes, companies and also for film productions.

Well-known and popular major events such as the Ostfahrzeugtreffen, Roadrunner´s Paradise Race 61 Rock´n Race Festival and other thematic events form a firm tradition.
Main exhibitions:
  • Aeronautical archaeology, research into the fate of pilots

  • History of the airfield before and after 1945

  • History of Military Aviation of the Former Eastern Bloc States 1945 - 1994

  • Crash of a Jak 28 over West Berlin in the context of the Cold War

  • History of GDR aviation, with focus on Interflug, NVA air forces and agricultural flight

  • MiG - Fighter aircraft, development and technology
