Detailing the history of aviation in Spain, the Museo del Aire allows visitors to explore seven hangars and six galleries in both indoor and outdoor spaces. Exhibitions include retired aircraft (about 150 in total), some of which were used by the Spanish Air Force. The site of the museum at Cuatro Vientos Airport is historically Spain’s first military airfield. Opened in 1911, it remains in use today. In addition to planes and helicopters, the museum has aircraft models and the uniforms, parts, and equipment utilized by pilots on display, as well as historic photographs and paintings. Aircraft includes the Vilanova Acedo, the Spanish version of the Blériot XI as well as the Jesus del Gran Poder, which was used on a transatlantic flight from America to Asia in 1928. Both early planes and bombers used in major wars can be seen. The majority of the planes on display were used at some point in the Spanish military.
The Museo del Aire is located just outside of Madrid and is best accessible by car or bus. It is open Tuesday to Sunday from 10 am to 2 pm. Admission is free. It is closed on Mondays.
