You’ll never go so far, just six kilometers from Paris!
Located in Paris-Le Bourget airport – the leading European business airport – the Air and Space museum is one of the top aviation museums in the world, both for the wealth of its collections and its history. Thanks to its exceptional historical heritage and more than 40 000 items it has started to collect since the early 20th century, the museum is protected by the “Musée de France” status. Visitors can discover about a hundred aircrafts among the 400 composing its collections, from the very first planes to the Breguet 19 “Point d’interrogation”, the Spitfire and the Concorde. The museum also owns an exceptional art collection, models, engraving, toys, and ethnographic items.
As a bond between past and future, the prestigious Air and Space museum is a lively place, holding events all year round, regularly acquiring collection objects, providing entertainment for all. It also offers rental spaces for events and filming.
All year long, various activities are offered to families: aircrafts visits (Concorde, Dakota-DC3, Boeing 747), planetarium, guided visits, etc. There is also a restaurant and a gift shop.
The place the Air and Space museum has been built on is very important and full of memory. Le Bourget is a place that has seen many aviation heroes, and among them, Charles Lindbergh. Furthermore it is the birthplace of commercial aviation; buildings are of great cultural interest, like the Art Deco terminal building.
The "Grande Galerie", currently under renovation, will be inaugurated by the end of 2019 to celebrate the centenary of the museum. The collections from the early years of aviation and the Great War will be presented in an updated setting and help improve the showcasing of this historic air terminal.
