“More than expected”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 19, 2014

Was pleasantly surprised by the size of the museum. Wonderfully "laid" out. Lots of stuff to see and do. Clean "toilets". The Concord, the Helicopters, War Planes, Early Flight, Models of Aircraft, Space section, etc. All fantastic. Great staff - very helpful. Spend the afternoon here if you are a flight enthusiast or even if your not.

“For all the plane nerds out there”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

While this place is a bit out of the way from central Paris (but not too hard as long as you find the right bus!), this is a great place for anyone who is in love with Aviation.
Very large museum at Le Bourget Airport and offers a large array of displays for both civil and military aviation. The site seem to be at the old passenger terminal of Le Bourget Airport which is very interesting. The highlight of this museum for myself is of course the two Concordes that are on display. Entry to the museum itself is free but will cost extra if you want to go onto the Concordes (included if you have a Paris Museum Pass). As I have never had a chance to fly on the Concordes before it retired it was a dream come true for me.

Other static displays also includes a retired Air France 747 Classic (free to get onboard) which interior pulled apart for people to get inside the mechanics of how it works, and also a rare Dassault Mercure that used to fly for Air Inter. The museum is huge and we were not able to go through all the displays, but try to dedicate a good 3-4 hours if you want to go through all the displays.

Highly recommended

“Two Concorde's under One Roof”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2014

Having visited this museum several times previously, it was a delight to be invited by friends and colleagues to visit once again and in particular, visit the "Hall Concorde" where the ability to see one Concorde is great but to see two under one roof is very unique.

Whilst the Air France Concorde is extremely unique in the way she is cared for with the famous nose having the ability to be lowered almost 11 years after she last flew, to pay an additional €8 just to see the Concorde's and not have any form of tour guidance or ability to see in the cockpit or sit in the seats is a big disappointment against some of the other Concorde museums. I was also disappointed to see that the Air France Concorde was in dire need of a serious clean!

“unexpectedly large museum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2013

Probably the world's number two air and space museum after the one in Washington DC. Much larger than I'd expected; you could spend hours here; be sure to see the whole thing. The classic old Le Bourget air terminal is worth a look all by itself; and of course it's also filled with old planes. Basic entrance is free; but there are some up-charges to see certain exhibits. For example, you can see the two (2) concordes from the outside for free, but there is an extra fee to go inside. The museum entrance fee structure is not explained well at the entrance to the museum. Getting to the place from downtown Paris is a bit of a hassle, requires metro + bus; and at the time of this writing, there is construction near the closest metro station. If you're a gear-head for this sort of stuff; don't miss it.
