The AéroMusée is a curiosity cabinet

Created in 2008, it has then been permanently settled in hangar G/6 to the north of the Chambley airfield. It is made up of two parts: one that traces the history of this base in the American era (1954-1967), the other recounts the long epic of hot-air and gas balloons through the centuries. More than 3,000 artifacts are on display, including engravings, gondolas, photos, and items related to the arts and crafts in Lorraine: glassware, plates, posters. The manufacturing, the special-shape balloons, but also the vision of the press on ballooning allow us to understand how lighter-than-air machines have managed to cross the centuries. Alternately war instruments, fairground objects, competition machines or simply leisure aerostats that allow you to taste the pleasure of gliding through the air. And the highlight of the visit is to try out virtual reality flight, on board a gondola among hundreds of hot-air balloons, and try to tame the frail skiff with virtual burners. An extraordinary journey to the land of the lighter-than-air.
