  • Went to this museum two days in a row. It's free unless you want to go into three of the special exhibits (including the concord). It's a little out of town but a short train trip and then a bus trip ...  more »
  • It was great learning experience for Kids and my kids had a wonderful time looking into rockets,airplanes and various WW2 old aircrafts etc. Space room was too good with satellites etc.  more »
  • On a recent trip to Paris, we decided to visit this air museum as I've always wanted to see Concorde. The bonus here, is they've got two! You enter one (a prototype, I believe), & walk through it & in...  more »

  • The museum is old and needs definitely some fresh restoration but all in all for aviation fan worth seeing .
  • I have been there twice, a wonderful museum with interesting historical airplanes and their stories.
  • a short distance by car from Paris, the museum is a nice view at the history of the aeronautics from a French/European perspective. Did you know that France had a nuclear deterrent policy during cold war? Or that many of the aeroplanes and helicopters that fought in the Korean and Vietnam wars also were used during the French XX century colonial wars? (Algiers) The airplanes in exhibition and maquettes are fantastic. Some areas are closed due to renovation (Debuts de l'aviation), and still is a great visit. You have indoors areas, and outdoors: where you can see the Ariadne 1 and 5, climb a 747 and look at the interior of the fuselage. Indoors are the 2 concordes: the 1st, a prototype, never used for the commercial flights (used for scientific flights), and a commercial version: you cannot believe what smaller the cabins where! Compared to today's wide body airplanes like the 777 or Airbus 380. Yet the Concorde still is one of the most beautiful planes ever (commercial). Why not 5 starts? Let's see the renovation of some areas, but the museum shows it ages, several interactive flight simulators available (Microsoft Flight Simulator!), few videos, but needs more interactivity. Also more languages: French, English and German the only one available, and not in every place. The cafeteria and the boutique do not invite for staying a little bit more, and in some hangars were dirty around! Hall 1939-1945 in particular, and it does not look today as in the 360 picture in the website! Will I go again? Yes! Sure! and take more time looking at some cross sections that are incredible. For a few days in Paris, worth going there? Not the typical Parisian experience, however if you like technology and the history of flight it adds another vision: worth visiting, plan for 4 hours and no good French cuisine at all, bring your baguettes!
  • Very nice museum. Worth a visit.
  • Great exibition of flight chronologically​ arranged and separated by method
