A stones throw away from the modern, high-tech Aeroscopia, this museum could not be more different. Under-funded volunteers do their best to restore historic aircraft on their love of aircraft, assisted by the 6 Euro entrance fee from visitors. It is normally open between 2...More

Ailes Anciennes is next door to the Aeroscopia museum so I took the opportunity to visit both on the same day. They have a large collection of aircraft but unfortunately they are stored in the open air and are suffering because of it. The restoration...More

This is a must-see open air museum! The collection features many famous airplanes that you can see from up close. You can get a printed guide at the reception with many interesting information about all the planes in there. Worth spending a few hours there....More

+Not well publicised compared with the a350/380 tours but to an aviation enthusiast or some one who just likes to wander around older aircraft then this is the place for you. Photography allowed, no crowds, helpful staff.

Aircraft that are restored here are exhibited in the Aeroscopia museum. The restoration is done entirely by volunteers and the Aeroscopia doesn't contribute anything, even though they get the benefits of the final outcome! I spent the rest of the afternoon here after looking through...More

Prior to visiting Aeroscopia, we'd had a look around the fence of nearby Ailes Anciennes as we thought it was closed on Sundays (it's advertised as being open on Saturdays and the afternoons of Tuesday to Friday), but on finishing at Aeroscopia, we noticed that...More

It's about 13km from the city center, so it's best to plan to spend some time there and visit the Aeroscopia museum too. The best way to arrive is by tram, there is a stop close to the museum.
