    If going with a young child, buy something small for him/her at the gift shop to help keep them occupied while you go nuts on the chopper sim ;+) Wish we could have stayed longer but I had a flight le...  more »

    The Museum is small enough. Allow 2 hours visit according to your tastes. If you are interested in engines and innovations you can spend more time. There are several simulators that are the delight of small and large. Outside a former 747 of the british is exposed and you can sit at the controls! Explanations are given by a Grandpa retired, which are very comprehensive. 65 euros for 2 adults and 3 teenagers anyway. The souvenir shop is a killer! This not worth Museum of Washington, San Diego and Palm Springs. But we had a great time according to the family. No parking problem. Pictures have been added.

    I love this place. They have a great selection of planes, partial planes, and part of a 747. I buy model planes from the gift shop and my son learned to fly drones here. It's located right next to San Carlos Airport so it's a cool setting too.

    A great place to visit for young and old aviation buffs. Lots of exhibits from vintage to Golden age to jet airplanes to helicopters to r/c drones and helis. Several different flight simulators are available, but make sure you check the times when they are operational.

    My 3 year old and 1 year old loved it. There are little planes kids are allowed to climb in and play with as well as a building area with large blocks. There is a giant plane in back. If your kids like planes it is awesome. We use discover and​ go and tried visiting for free.

    Love a museum that has activities for all ages. My three year old grandson loved this place. There are hands-on exhibits. Highly recommend for children on a rainy day. No snack bar. But nearby drive in. Ask about parties.
