Created in 1985, the Safran museum is housed in an historic seaplane hangar built during the 1930s. It takes visitors on a chronological journey through the history of an industry known for its legendary heroes and breakthrough technologies, from the rotary engines that revolutionized the early days of aviation to the powerful turbofans and rocket engines of today.
13,000 visitors a year
Find out what a drone is, admire a real Mirage fighter, spin-up an engine on a test rig, examine a stage of the Ariane launcher. The Safran Aerospace Museum gives visitors exciting interactive displays, with full-scale engines and aircraft joining models and audiovisual presentations to help people understand how they work and what they’re made of. In addition to the engines that were at the origin of the Group, the museum also showcases other systems and equipment built by our companies, including landing gear, braking systems, wiring and much more, illustrating the fantastic story of the conquest of air and space.
Many of the historical pieces on display were restored by current and former employees of Group companies, passionate about their job, who are members of the Association of Friends of the Safran Museum.
