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.

  • They will not hesitate to nothing to go and pass it super. In addition, it will make you rejuvenate and step do you spend a day happy and complicity with them. It is one of the best choices I've seen to take the children. It is a perfect day with aircraft "parked" on the outside, and the visit to several hangars with more aircraft, and many more surprises. It is all very carefully Treaty. And certainly the morning are you going as if by magic, giving you account when you've finished of the well you have enjoyed in the company of your children, and above all, what they have enjoyed with your company. It is also a historical review of aviation, providing you further interesting things. Even in that you will win. Rigorous, entertaining story shared entertainment, positive experience and of very good memory (see the times that they will call you back), all in a simple environment, with honey, and respect and frankly good "prices"... it will depend on your willingness, already rather than charge you, they ask for a contribution to the sustainability and improvement and expansion of the Museum. Oh, and sorry,... in the end, the store. Small and simple, but can not fail to see it,... your children less. It's worth the time. It will be a great day to enjoy the company and complicity of your children. You'll...

  • 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.
