A great aviation museum with a lots of history. I saw planes I have only had a chance to read about up close and personal. The hangar based displays were the best part. Got to see two JU-52s Tri-motor transports. One was an original Junkers, the other was built by CASA under license. Some very historic aircraft on display, including... More

Id suggest arriving at opening time (10am) as you need plenty of time to see all the aircraft on show so you might still be looking at closing time (2pm)

Very rare aeroplanes, big collection. Must visit for aeroplane lovers. Better to go by car. Or go by bus. If you take a tram, you have to walk more else take a bus.

When I planned my holiday, I made sure that I visit the Aviation museum. I checked several sites about the museum to find out where it is situated and when it is open. They all gave the impression that the museum is open all year round. On arriving there, after a 20 minute walk from the nearest Metro station, the... More

I am amused by visitors who complain that all this museum has to offer is "a few aircraft". This is flatly untrue, there is a large number of exhibits, some quite unique. In fact, even though the museum is large, it does feel somewhat cramped, except for the many open air exhibits. And by all means, skip this visit if... More

We have been to air museums the world over and this one did not disappoint. The collection is extensive - some outside and some in hangers. Entry was free. Several of the other posters have given fantastic descriptions of the museum - so will not repeat. We followed the advice from other posters on TA -- took the subway line... More

I took my ten year old son here and enjoyed it as much as he did! The museum is a bit hard to find so I recommend going by taxi and then asking the staff to book a return taxi as we did. The collection is remarkable and well displayed. Even more amazing: it is free! We had a sense... More

Firstly the location. We sent ages planning hot to get here.... and the location of the museum is incorrectly given on various websites (including the start on trip advisor). It IS near Cuatro Vientos airfield. But its the other side of the Auto Pista M40 from the airfield it's self. One option, as mentioned in quite a few reviews is... More

We walked from the Cuatro Vientos Metro station which was a 20 minute trek, apparently there are buses and we did find one on the way back. IF you do walk make sure you walk on the same side of the road as the railway line (we didn't . . .). Free entry was a nice surpise! Plenty here for... More
