Description

Dear English-speaking visitors,

Welcome!

Conveniently situated a five-minute drive from the city of Montélimar, the European Aviation Museum is an ideal destination for families, groups, and all aviation enthusiasts!
Rated third best attraction in the city, our museum has been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Tripadvisor this year again!
The museum was founded in 1987 as a non profit-making organization dedicated to the preservation of the French and European aeronautical heritage for future generations. It is run by an enthusiastic group of volunteers and members and is now home to a unique collection of fighter aircraft in South-eastern France (66 aircraft including trainers, bombers, transport planes etc. and numerous models), ranging from a genuine SV4C Stampe to the fabulous Mirage 2000 !

Buses and private cars can easily park at the entrance gate of the museum (no charge) and the site is wheelchair accessible. The museum offers a special group rate (+12 pax), with no extra charge for the guided tour in English.
