I am not particularly interested in planes but I was really surprised of my visit and I will keep a very good memory of this place: people who make the guided tour are volunteer, dedicated, passionate, it was very interesting and funny (a lot of small stories), don't miss it!

It's a little bit complicated to get to but worth it if you're an aviation enthusiast. You'll see planes you won't get to see other places, like the Mirage IV. The volunteer staff are all former pilots of the aircraft shown or aircraft mechanics or other aviation professionals and have a deep passion for French aviation. Our guide, Jean-Paul was fantastic and made the visit even more special. It's a bit complicated to get to. You can take a 30 euro taxi from the city center, or take the 112 bus from Metro Gare de Vénissieux (runs every 90 mins). Alternatively you can take the 54 bus or the 111 bus from Metro Gare de Vénissieux (runs every 20-30 minutes) and walk about 1 kilometer.

This is an interesting museum concentrating on French Aviation only. About 18klms out of the centre of Lyon. I suspect you will need a car, and parking was not an issue. Be aware you cannot just buy a ticket and wander around the place. You have to have a guided tour which can last up-to two hours. Our guide was knowledgeable but did not speak any English,which was a shame. Seeing the Mirage IV was certainly worth the trip. No eating facilities available at the Museum. Recommend.

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 !

We found this museum online this weekend as had a cousin visiting who is an aviation geek. We all enjoyed the visit very much and were especially pleased that our guide an ex-navy aviator went out of his way to explain the displays in English. The exhibits are all real aircraft which have been saved from the scrap heaps. There is a 1 euro extra charge to sit in a jet fighter and have your photo taken which very acceptable as the museum is self supporting
