Being a Concord fan and aviation nut in general, this museum has long been in my bucket list. Even though I have been to its sister manufacturing site Bristol and Brooklands in UK, still I want to visit all the places in the world where it is kept. And this museum has two of these.

While it's a privilege to visit it's birth place, it always makes me sad to see this beautiful futuristic swan just sitting there among other out of date planes because it was forced into early retirement.

Since this museum is located right outside the Toulouse airport and Airbus main assembly facility, it has almost all of its current line up planes from A320 to A380. The only one missing is the iconic Beluga which is still doing regular rounds between Toulouse and Hamburg. But they do have a part of Boeing's Super Guppy that Airbus partly manufactured.

I Can't speak highly enough of this place. A fantastic museum with 3 large aircraft greeting you before you've even hit reception. Very reasonably priced with lots to see inside. All very clean and no dusty exhibits which sometimes happen in such museums. Outside the rear greeted with what can only be described as one of the highlights of my adult life, walking around underneath the A380, A320, and best of all the A340-600. Unfortunately the A380 wasn't open for walking in yet but I will be back next year to go on. Well worth a trip from the UK for this and the factory tour

As a keen aviator this place has been at the top of my wish list for some time and it didn’t disappoint. First impressions upon arrival are that of absolutely astonishment and awe, the sheer size of the Super Guppy beggars belief, the beauty and elegance of the Concorde and the vast array of beautiful and diverse machinery is quite astonishing. We happily spent a few hours marvelling at this collection of aviation history; a must for anyone who’s even vaguely interested in this sort of thing - its just amazing.

Once you arrive at the Aeroscopia site, you are offered four opportunities. One is to visit the beautiful museum display hangar with its interesting historic aviation exhibits including a complete Concorde and an Airbus 300. The aviation museum itself is reason enough to make the visit.
However, the disappointment stems from the three alternative tours that are offered to the Airbus design and manufacturing campus. I took the "Panorama Tour" and the tour of the Airbus 380 assembly facilities. I did not take the Airbus "Green Tour". Each one of these tours is over ten euros and last 1-1/2 hours. They offer separate tours in French and English. The Airbus 380 tour requires that you apply at least two days in advance and you must bring your passport with you for identification. For the effort and expense, I found the two tours that I took to be disappointing. I would not recommend going on these tours unless you are really, really, really interested in seeing the Airbus facilities.
On the other hand, I found the museum to be excellent and worth the effort and expense. The Aeroscopia Museum has a very good app that you can download that allows you to optically scan information from the major exhibits then listen to information about the aircraft on your iPhone.
The Aeroscopia site is at the far northern extreme of the Toulouse Airport. You must either drive or take tram line T1 to the Beauzelle stop. It is about a 20 minute walk from the tram stop to the museum. Currently, part of the walk requires having to walk through a very dusty, active construction zone. Once you pick your way through the poorly marked construction mess, the walk improves the remainder of the way to the museum. If you have access to an automobile, I recommend driving. There is plenty of parking on-site.

Did this as an add-on to the Airbus site tour. Being a family of seven started to knock the price up a tad (but still not unreasonable on a per-head basis).

To be honest, I think I preferred the museum more than the Airbus tour - simply because you could walk around in the planes etc. An amazing selection of planes (two Concorde, an A300B, Super Guppy etc (the pre-cursor to the Beluga) and an A380). All very well laid out etc. The A380 is simply an amazing plane - and massive.

Whilst it is difficult to find any positive points from the current Covid, it did mean the crowds were very small and there was no queuing needed to go on anything (in fact we went on some of the planes more than once). Also, well laid out from the health/social distancing point of view.

I would highly recommend this.

If you're at all interested in flight or air travel, feel free to spend a few hours at this museum. They have a open Guppy, you can visit inside of a Concorde and a A300, they have a (basic) flight simulator, etc... all good fun and very enlightening

This museum takes you through the history of flight and has some amazing exhibits to view and walk inside. Highlight for most will be the Concorde and A300. Layout has been well thought out and there are plenty of exhibits to keep one occupied, in our case over 2 hours it didn't feel like it though. Well worth the trek on the Tram which was fun to do.

This is a review of the small museum, and not the Airbus factory tour which I have unfortunately yet to experience (I visited on a Sunday when the tours don’t operate).

Admission was a reasonable €10, and although it took me under two hours to walk around everything I was pleased to be able to see the two Concordes close up, as well as many other interesting artefacts. There are also exhibitions on the basics of how jet engines work, the evolution of aircraft etc. so educational for families with kids. The A300 you can walk through has various cutaway sections which give some idea of the construction and complexity of an aircraft, but bizarrely towards the rear it becomes a bit like walking through a kitchen & bathroom showroom! This seems like a strange use of the space - presumably the intention was to recognise that luxury interiors can be specified by certain customers.

Gift shop has a good variety of souvenirs for all ages, but prices as you’d expect are fairly high. On the day I visited there was an aviation careers fair taking place, so the museum was fairly busy and perhaps exhibition space a little more limited than it usually would be.

I had six hours to spend in Toulouse before flying back and was recommended to come here.

It’s around €8 and ten minutes by Uber from the airport or €1,60 and an hour by tram and a short walk.

Lockers are available free of charge to leave bags and rucksacks since these are not allowed on the tours.

I sighed up for two tours, each last 1,5 hours and some time in the museum and enjoyed all three activities but it would be ok just to have one tour or just time in the museum if you have less time.

Tours are available in French and English. Ben was our tour guide and he’s easy to understand and funny.

The only downside to the tours is that it’s not permitted to take photos

The museum is good too and there are plenty of things to touch and interact with including a Concorde and old Airbus A300B

It’s a good way to spend a few hours.
