The Museum is located near Zurich (10 minutes with a local train). It's not that big, only two hangars, but it's well maintained and hosts some rare or even unique planes.

Among other things they keep a small fleet of Ju 52 flying. From March to November the Ju-52 takes off every Saturday:

Last week I was there with a friend, I spend most of the time as "tourist guide", but I took some picture on the first hangar too:

This model was very popular but, as far as I know, very few planes survived:

Neat aircraft. This is the first time I saw that they were already testing the twin tail, parallel to one another, as far back as World War 1.

It looks really similar to an Fe2b but it has the twin boom and quad wheel undercarriage instead of a tricycle landing carriage.

Being Italian, the DH-1 looks to me like a scaled down Caproni Ca.3:

The Caproni was, of course, much bigger and had 3 engines.
There is one in the USA:

Another Swuiss plane. After WW II many of these were upgraded with turbo-prop engines:
