Museo del Aire, Madrid

(4.4/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • Good Museum. It is worth the visit, but it is difficult to find. Very poorly indicated. Limited by your space, should have more aircraft for exchanges with other countries. Very good restorations. The area of the war in Morocco very well set.

  • I went with my kids and they enjoyed it. Airplanes, helicopters, anti-aircraft, etc from all periods. Them surprised and decided that they had that return more times. A penalty that only it can upload to one of them aircraft.

  • For those who love aviation, this Museum will be interesting) the bulk of aircraft stands on the street, there is also something to look at in the pavilions. On the territory of the Museum there is a kiosk with souvenirs)

  • Museum of old planes. Good place for airplane enthusiast. They charge 3 euros for the entrance fee.
  • I really love it. If you like airplanes, you have to go. They have a very good collection there. The entrance is free.
  • 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.
  • A lot of planes but could allow more visits inside them.
  • 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.
