This is a tired under staffed and ill kept air museum. Not a lot going for it really. The husby was happy but I would have killed for a place to simply sit while he was looking at the planes.

Aviation enthusiasts will enjoy this museum! Many unique and fascinating planes, helicopters, and satellites on display. Note that the great collection of very old aircraft--WWI and earlier--are closed until end of 2019 or early 2020, so worth coming back for. Admission is free, but there's...More

My son and I had a great day out in December at this free museum. We paid the premium to be able to go into the Concordes (very cool to transfer between the two planes, parked with overlapping noses) and the 747. Well worth it....More

Getting to the museum involves a serious commitment to public transportation. We elected to take the RER B. The RER train was worn out and the train going had a growling motor. Dusty, worn out. Depressing. When we arrived at le Bourget RER station, we...More

I went there three times. For the first time you can take a look, but if you want to make a more detail visit, please, make this with calm to read all notes and informations about each aircraft or component.
