Museo del Aire, Madrid
(4.3/5 based on 170+ reviews on the web)
Military history and aircraft enthusiasts appreciate Museo del Aire, a national aviation museum housing hundreds of weapons, documents, and aircraft. Learn about more than 20 planes and helicopters on display, most of them ex-military, and watch for the Cessna 310--the space suit used by Cuba's first cosmonaut. When you're finished viewing the indoor exhibitions, head out back to see the Granma Memorial, a glass structure featuring the yacht that transported Fidel Castro and his revolutionaries from Mexico to Cuba for the revolution. The outdoor displays also feature a Soviet tank destroyer and the engine of a U.S. Lockheed U-2 spy plane shot down during the Cuban Missile Crisis.

  • A walk through history Aeronautics Spanish in which you can see from the first "flying monsters" created, until recent retirements of real models in the country. Air motors, real simulators of many models, visit real booths of various models, and of course real models of airplanes and helicopters in a complete exhibition in the open air and in hangars. In addition, the visit is free (though it is worth scratching the Pocket to help the maintenance of the Museum, done by volunteers).

  • It have reformed and this great, if you like those aircraft and the story not you it can lose. Is very good to spend a morning with children. The only bad thing is the access and exit... otherwise very interesting.

  • I want to express my gratitude to Brat_Pirat for the wonderful recommendations on this museum. Visited him today, November 19, 2016, I, aunt 48 years and my 11-year-old son, and were very pleased. Clearly followed the road course and easily came to the Museum. But the walkway, I tell you!. Such a marsh shot must be prepared physically and morally, of course. But experience and the pleasure of exploring Exposition catch on with a vengeance. Thank you! Recommend this Museum, we have remained good impressions weight!

  • Nice place to view big amount of planes and immerse into the history of aviation. Keep in mind that nobody there speaks English and you can't get audioguide here.
  • It has been home to a total of 150 different aircraft (planes, helicopters) as well as an exhibition with uniforms, medals, engines, models, weapons and other aviation related artefacts.
