Museo Del Aire, Madrid

(200+ reviews on the web)
Military Museum
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. Add Museo Del Aire to your Madrid travel itinerary, and discover new vacation ideas by using our Madrid trip itinerary planner.

  • It is amazing. You can't leave Madrid without visiting it
  • I really love it. If you like airplanes, you have to go. They have a very good collection there. The entrance is free.
  • Museum of old planes. Good place for airplane enthusiast. They charge 3 euros for the entrance fee.
  • 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.
  • Great place to see old airplanes and read information about them. The museum is mostly outdoors so if you're going, make sure the weather is good. There's a small café and a shop available.
