We went there with 7 y.o. kids and it was fun. It is cheap, just 3 euro and there are a lot of interesting planes. The museum is bright, clean and modern. We spent 1,5 hours there and would recommend it.

For telling the story of aviation from the Portuguese perspective, the Museu do Ar does the job phenomenally well. When you walk in, you begin a timeline from the first "birdman" to jump off an igreja, and the "manifesto" of the Portuguese Leonardo da Vinci,...More

I very good collection of airplanes used by the Portuguese air force. The airplanes are in a very pristine preserved state, and some surprises like a spitfire with the Portuguese cross

This is a very nice air museum with some rare plains from the beginning of the 20th used by the Portuguese Air Force . Very well organized and a nice clean presentation. The access is very cheap
