Very interesting for the expert, very difficult for lay-men.

I am an aircraft designer by education and trade. For me the place holds many technical wonders and information. From early days to more recent technologies and developments. For... read more

As our flight was scheduled in the late afternoon we decided to visit the museum before getting to the airport. After one hour we reached finally the entrance of the museum. At the security control we were stopped by the security staff, which in an unfriendly french showed us the suitcase and indicated the exit. We asked more times the... More

We wanted to visit the museum, before the departure from Paris. As we arrived to the entrance to the police officer refuses our entrance to the museum because of the small luggage, which as written on the homepage of the museum was accepted for its size. He was very unfriendly and didn't help us to find a solution to deposit... More

For starters, entry into the museum itself is free. You can pay 9 euro per person to enter three aircraft if you choose. Put aside a full day to see this place. It's almost 1 hour by public transport to arrive from central Paris. Once inside, you can spend hours and hours seeing the aircraft. It covers everything from the... More

I am an aircraft designer by education and trade. For me the place holds many technical wonders and information. From early days to more recent technologies and developments. For others the place may be more miraculous. Superficial descriptions, few explanations about physical and engineering concepts. Almost no true historical and economic guidelines can make the place tedious for the average... More

The largest museum I've ever visited. I spent there FOUR hours just looking at different planes, some of them were more like retro cars of 1900s, and I could hardly believe they were flying one day. I could also enter the famous Concorde plane and take some photos of myself on the ramp as if I were a VIP guest... More

This museum has everything from the first plane models to th Concordes at display. You can even enter the Concordes. The restaurant is not brilliant unfortunately

This is the premier aviation museum in France, entry is free and there are many halls contained within the museum charting the fascinating and varied history of French aviation in addition to space exploration. There are lots of aircraft types both civilian and military, there is a charge to go on board the Boeing 747, DC-3, and the two Concorde's.... More

The museum is quite easy to get to from Paris by metro and bus. It took us less than 45 minutes from St. Michel to the Museum, using the Metro (4, 7 or 10) and the 152 or 350 bus. The buses come about 5-7 minutes apart and the Metro also runs frequently. There is enough to see from all... More

If you're an aircraft or space nut, this is the place to get your geek on! A seemingly endless number of exhibits, well presented, traces the start of aviation through to the present, including space exploration. The 747 with cutaway areas so that you can see the cargo hold, equipment bays, etc is a great exhibit. As someone pointed out,... More
