You can see a lot of aircrafts here,some of them you can visit.The main reason to go there could be CONCORDE.There are two of them place face to face,you can visit them,it is a nice experience.There is another one exposed at ROISSY CHARLES DE GAULLE,one is at BLAGNAC at TOULOUSE AIRPORT,and one I think is in LONDON.

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!

The romance of flight is what this museum is all about. A bit far out, at Bourget, it takes a bit more than an hour by two metro changes and a long bus ride to reach it, but worth the effort. The French bus drivers are a patient lot, accepting cash and returning change. The museum thrills with its collection... More

i've been to several Air Museums , and i have to say this is among one of the better ones. The exhibits are very logically laid out and well spaced with informative plaques in front of them. You can view for the bottom or the top, which is a nice feature to be able to get the top and look... More

A short drive from the CDG airport, Paris, hop into this Museum to spend at least half-a-day. That will be time well-spent. There is display of Aircrafts from their birth years in 1900, fighter planes during World war, Civilian plane, Concorde, which you can view from inside and Rocket standing on the ground. Kids will enjoy it and adults will... More

If you are a fan of aviation (you know who you are;) then the French Air & Space Museum is a must! However, I do not recommend for casual tourists to Paris. If you are motivated it can be accessed by train and then a moderate walk. Once at the Le Bourget train stop I used the walking feature of... More
