  • A school group (CP), who had not been warned that meal covered areas were in work's done it out of all sheltered areas where he tried to start their pic - nic with threats to call security and we end up eating out with 5 degrees and rain. Unacceptable!

  • I visit air and space museums around the world. As an anglophone, I love this museum because I can see and learn about the contributions of the French to flight, which are sometimes missed in English-...  more »
  • Very interesting Museum for lovers of space and of planes. With two copies of the famous CONCORD and more a boing 767 where you can enter and observe the entire structure of the same. It also has various copies used in war and other types of planes, really fascinating.

  • Lots of good things I can say about this place ! I have a huge fascination about the aviation industry and from the curiosity I went there! True fact is I am satisfied 💯% and why not when you see the Concord and have a chance to go inside and have a look. Also bunch of aircraft from the WW2 and some equipment for the space and some simulations! What else do you need?
  • By far the best air museum I have ever seen. Besides the iconic 747 you can visit the Concorde and a lot of planes from the world wars. Great place for kids also.
  • The Corcorde and all aircraft collection are amazing. The Museum was full of educated kids and I enjoyed the hole place. 😀
  • It is a big museum whit a lot of legendary aircrafts, as the Concorde. But you have to pay to enter to the airplane and there aren’t indications of where you have to show your paid ticket
  • Definitely take time out to visit this museum. Part of the fun is navigating the public transport system to get there. Amazed at the number of aircraft on display. At the time we visited it was too windy to open the 747, but later in the day you could walk through. Worth it too see the cutaways - a 747 deconstructed! Well worth a walk through the Concorde. We were surprised there weren't more people there. A few school groups arrived during the day, but werent really noticeable. We stopped for lunch in the cafe and had a great burger. Our waitress was so apologetic she didnt speak English which surprised us, as we enjoy trying out our mediocre French! If you have kids looking for something different to do in Paris make te effort to go. It was a hit with our 11 year old.
