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

Great place to spend all day, if you have a real interest in aircraft. Even if you don't, a great place to spend half a day. And a very good café. Some of the halls were closed when I visited, but there was an excellent WW1 special exhibit. Seeing Concorde again reminded me what a beautiful object we'd lost from... More

The museum is fantastic and full of all things aeronautical from bat wing designed fabric planes to rockets designed for deploying sattelites.

This is a must if You like Aeroplanes. Lots of old stuff, rare WWII planes, few unique French constructions. There is also a hall all about Space flights, with Arianne, Sputnik and so on. Basically it is free to enter, You only pay few Euros for entering B747, C47, Concorde and Super Frelon - definitely worth spending. The stuff is... More

They have some beautiful aircraft, especially early ones. All the exhibits are cordoned off so you cannot get very close. Most aircraft you can't even see the cockpit, controls or gueages. Even in the walk through Concord and Boeing 747, you can barely see the cockpit, they could have made the plexi wall go into the cockpit more like the... More
