Are you ready to board ? Take off !
From the early hops of Clément Ader onboard Eole, to Airbus’ electric E-Fan prototype, you will understand how the work of enthusiasts, amateurs and professionals made Man’s dream of flight become reality.
Shaped like the fuselage of a large aircraft, Aeroscopia’s 7,000 square metre main hall shelters some of the most famous aircraft of history.
From the Grand Balcony overlooking the hall, the majestic Super Guppy welcomes you to the start of your visit and beckons you inside its cargo bay, where you can watch a short film that tells the story of aircraft production in Toulouse. Don’t forget to look for the flight controls that remain disconnected between the nose and the tail of the open aircraft… and contemplate the progress that has been made with the Guppy’s successor, the inimitable Beluga that we know today!
Take a few minutes to enjoy the view from the balcony and see what the museum has to offer: from large airliners to the ultra-light aircraft and gliders suspended from the roof structure as if transfixed in flight. As well as the Super Guppy, two other legendary aircraft await. Board Concorde and discover the forest of dials and switches in the cockpit capped by the long slender nosecone, then continue past the test engineer’s station to the small passenger cabin to the rear of the aircraft. A true journey into the past! One of France’s presidents was lucky enough to use this Concorde for official trips: can you guess which one?
A few steps more and another trip through time awaits: welcome onboard the Airbus A300B and its transparent floor. Imagine the ballet of loading and unloading cargo and luggage beneath your feet. Imagine the ballet of loading and unloading cargo and luggage beneath your feet.
Have fun while learning!
Six interactive themed exhibitions complement our collection of aircraft and invite you to test your knowledge… and your skills.
“Behind the Scenes of a Commercial Flight.” “Aviation Professions.” “Assemble your Aircraft.” “Flight Mechanics” “The French Air Force: Controlling the Sky” “Aviation Archeology” “Projecting the Future”
Have you ever dreamed of taking control of an airliner? Buckle up in the pilot’s seat of an A380 flight simulator and take off from Toulouse-Blagnac international airport. The cockpit hardware, the manual flight controls that are identical to the original aircraft, and the realistic cartography of the Toulouse region all make this a larger-than-life experience. And because no-one should improvise as an airline pilot, we highly recommend you read the simulator’s instructions carefully before taking the controls if you don’t want to fail at taking off successfully! Your journey ends with the museum gift shop, which a choice of more than 1,200 articles to enjoy or to offer. Models, clothes, toys and books… You will be spoilt for choice for souvenirs of your trip to Aeroscopia The shop’s wide range of products for both children and adults will satisfy all tastes and all budgets.
