    I came here with a small group of resident of the structure in which I work. Personally I was disappointed... The place is clean, the staff friendly. The missiles were really very impressive, but I find the place you get older... Expos airplanes are great that it is clear, but there's a little something that bothers me... (I can't identify him...). Those who are to visit are very old... I can not put under way, because this place may interest other people certainly older than me or clearly most passionate... it is a pity that he didn't visit or number arrows in the expo halls... And that the plate is not more accessible... I think that it is a place to visit for a true enthusiast, to do his own opinion. Even the gift shop I didn't find the taste of the day...

    Amazing place to spend an afternoon. Lots of aircrafts and spacecrafts as well as documentaries about air / space conquests. Great for kids as well.

    Museum was ok, I would not recommend the restaurant inside if you are tourist, their waiters don't speak English.

    The museum is old and needs definitely some fresh restoration but all in all for aviation fan worth seeing .
