The SAS Museum is located at Oslo Airport Gardermoen, on the west side of the airport. The Museum is displaying an exhibition of the history behind the airline Scandinavian Airlines, and the three startup companies behind the airline.

Definitely worth considering if I'm ever in that neck of the woods. I constantly ask myself why there are not more museums like this in the world. Yes I understand running costs, but seriously there are far more less significant facilities or institutions around that get proper funding. Well done to these ppl.
Airlineguy do you know of any more like this?

Great link Robert, thanks for posting it. Back in the 80s I ramped a lot of SAS and Scanair flights, using DC10s, A300s, DC8-63s and DC9-40s. SAS/Scanair flights used Oslo Fornebu in those times. I once flew on a Maersk 737-200 into Gardermoen, when it was a small airport surrounded by forest, and was home to a few Norwegian C-130s. That was my first ever trip on the flight deck of a modern jetliner. How times change!

Neil.

Regarding aviation museums, we have in Brussels the (state owned) "Royal Museum of the Army and of Military History", which is also completely accessible to the public and free of entrance fees. Despite the name, this museum also has civil airplanes. The whole thing looks a bit old and messy, but the collection itself is very interesting, as well as the setting in which the museum is located, namely the "Jubelpark " (Parc du Cinquantenaire / Park of the Fiftieth Anniversary). The museum also has departments where hand weapons and tanks are shown, and there is also a store, but I do not know if they have scale model airplanes.

I’d go just to see the Caravelle! The rest would be real bonus none the less.
