As an aviation enthusiast, this museum had been high on my "To do" list for a long time, I'm very happy to have finally paid it a visit. There is a wide variety of aircraft and aeronautical technology on display here, both indoors and outdoors....More

Firstly, if getting there by car, know exactly where you're going. There is a "Museo" sign from the main road, but it's a very sharp, unexpected turn. If you miss it, expect a couple of mile detour to go round again! It's less than 3...More

It is only open for 4 hours. It was entirely my own fault that I arrived there at 1pm without checking. The woman at the entrance told me they closed at 2pm. So it was a bit of a rush to get round and obviously...More

Very impressive museum, with a lot of well-kept aircraft, indoors and outdoors. And lots of rarities compared to other museum. Count on spending 2-3 hours, at least. Buses from Principe Pio by the Royal Palace go there in 10-15 minutes; else take a cab there...More

Great place for aviation enthusiasts. There are many historical pieces both in inside and outside exhibits. The planes outside need some TLC but the descriptions of all the exhibits are in English and Spanish. The museum is constantly upgrading and expanding its collections. This museum...More

We drove to this museum, and were lucky to find it as our GPS could not find it. We drove to the airport and asked and were given instructions in broken English, but enough to find the museum. The website says it is free, but...More

This large aviation museum is located just outside Madrid at Cuatro Vientos and can be reached by bus. It is open for four hours each day 1000-1400. Much of the collection is based on the history of the Spanish armed forces. Photography is allowed.
