On a very rainy day we spent about 4 hours here. Even though a few areas were shut for renovations we had a good time and loved planete pilote with the kids. It was such a shame that they have not made more of the Concorde exhibit which could be much better and more interesting for kids. The new section... More

As an aviation enthusiast, I remember seeing the brochure for the Aerospace and Space Museum in Paris. After making my way there from Orly, I was overwhelmed by the overall size of the museum. The museum was well structured as to it's exhibits and the chance of walking onto a Concorde. The cutaway of the 747 is worth a visit,... More

For an aircraft or history enthusiast this would be a great place to visit as the collection is very impressive. However from a whole package point of view there are things that are lacking. There was a lot of building work going on so it was hard to hear yourself think over the banging and the grinding of industrial tools.... More

Easily reached by the 350 bus from Gare de l'Est the Musee takes up a fair chunk of Le Bourget Aerodrome. It is being substantially rebuilt at the moment, and the visitor experience inevitably suffers. But the bits which have been finished are superb. In particular, a recreation of the workshop of an early 'stick and string' aviation pioneer is... More

We've been to some great space museums in the USA, this one was like starter level. As for the aircraft, it could have been great if one could have seen inside the aircraft outdoors…..but they are simply parked and deteriorating. The collection inside is better and far more interesting…..if not for that the entire place would be ratted "Poor" by... More

I had a spare day during a recent trip in the Paris area. I have visited many aircraft museums in the world and this ranks as one of the best. During a visit of 3 hours I saw close to 80 aircraft plus several space machines-- rockets, capsules, satellites. I would have spent longer than 3 hours but the weather... More

If you have some spare time and even a remote interest in aviation, this is one of the world's most iconic museums. The collection is huge and covers everything from the dawn of flight through to spacecraft. The French have always been at the front edge of aviation and there are some amazing prototypes and Cold War 'good ideas' on... More

Cool aircraft and space machines. Concords were the best! Retro Aircraft was not interesting. Cool Statues outside!
