*This museum located close to the city center of Lyon provides a wide range of French military aircrafts (around 30), all restored and displayed to contribute to the preservation of this heritage. *Managed by volunteers only, the EALC Museum is proud to restore any kind of airplane or helicopter which flew within the french military forces (air force, navy, army) in order to exhibit in an interesting manner those exciting pieces of history and engineering to any visitor. *Every visit lasts around 2 hours and provides an included guided tour offering visitors miscellaneous facts, information and stories about each aircraft.

Little known aviation museum near Lyon with an incredible collection of mainly french aircraft's from all periods. The guides are very friendly and useful and you can even spend some time inside the cockpits of a decommissioned Mirage 2000 and Jaguar. Highly recommended !
