We spent the morning here on our last day in the Paris area, unfortunately we did have enough time to do the museum justice. We just did the "forfeit avions" which included the permanent exhibition. My son is fascinated by planes and space and had a fantastic time, we were surprised by the exhibition about the the Rosetta mission and... More

We went to this museum with a parisian friend basically thinking that we wanted to do something for our kids (5-6 years old). However, it turned out to be a fantastic museum with plenty of aircraft, free entrance and they allow you to eat your picnic lunch on their terrace. If you’re an expert or not, there are several things... More

Great collections, especially the early aircraft - I was assuming they were replicas, but looked closer at the description and they were original aircraft, some well over 100 years old! Unfortunately the world war II room was closed when I was there, but it looked quite small anyway and I think the main attractions at this place are the origins... More

The museum is located in the old airport of Paris-Le Bourget. The place is gorgeous, but the room of arrivals and departures is unfortunately not sufficiently highlighted. The visit is a bit backwards, a little disorienting at first, and is especially much walking. Collections are however splendid: aircraft of World War II and the uniform of the pilots are very...

I agree with BrianR, my visit in June was very disappointing. I have visited many air museums in England, USA and Australia. I am a member of the South Australian Air Museum. I go to museums to see aircraft and aircraft equipment. Firstly, parts of the museum were closed. WW2 was closed and a corporate function closed another two areas.... More

It was our second visit after 18 years and still great. Shows the beginnings of flying including balloons and covers all times including space age with rockets! And you can explore 2 concordes and a 747

It seems I'm going to be the odd-man out here. That one review that sticks in the craw of glowing, enthusiastic reviews. Oh, how I am saddened to be that one. But, mes chers, I must speak my truth. The Musée de l’air et l’espace is one of those museums in the Paris area you might think would be a... More

The Musée de l'air et de l'espace located at Le Bourget airport, Paris, France has one of the better collections of early aviation airplanes, a building full of various helicopters, two Concordes to walk through, a 747 walk through, an exhibit hall under construction for WW II aircraft, and a couple of rockets displayed outside. There is an area that... More

The main reason I wanted to visit was to see the Concordes. The very first prototype and one of Air France's. The most beautiful and futuristic looking aircraft by far, a masterpiece of engineering. One of them should be in the Louvre. It's fun to watch people's faces as they see it for the first time. Make sure you get... More
