  • For an avid aviation photographer like me, this is a real gem of a place with its 70-odd aircraft telling the modern history of French military aviation. Many of the exhibits have been lovingly...

  • One of the nicest museums I've seen in my life! I recommend it to anyone who love airplanes! They've a lot of history there 👌🏽
  • A wonderful little find just outside of Montélimar, with passionate staff and an extensive collection of fighters from East & West
  • A very remarkable museum with some excellent pieces such as Mirage IV, A-4S, Crusader and a vast collection of different Mirages. Some airplanes outside are in poor condition but others are in excellent state. Some hangars are a bit crowded so it is hard to take good pictures. For example it is impossible to take good photos of Mirage IV and Crusader. Otherwise it is a museum that enthusiasts should not miss. For families it is also a very good option. Last tip for management: please don't sell fake American jet T-shirts but make a nice one of the museum as collectible. You have enough to be proud of!
  • we really had an excellent experience. also my 3 year old kid was very happy thanks
  • This is an excellent museum that I had the great pleasure of visiting last week. It is full of well preserved historic and interesting aircraft and has restoration workshops on site. Our group was made feel extremely welcome by all the staff. Thank you!
