Located at Paris-Le Bourget, Europe’s largest business airport, the French Air and Space Museum (Musée de l'Air et de l'Espace) is a fabulous place for discovering the world's finest collection of flying machines, prototypes and legendary aircraft of today and yesteryear. The museum has over 350 dream machines on display, including spacecraft, Concorde, DC3, Mirage, 747 and the Ariane rocket family, to name just a few!
A new area has been created within the museum to engage children aged 6 to 12: Planète Pilote. Here children can sit in the cockpit, view airport activity from the control tower, take part in space station operations and explore the various planets in our solar system.
The French Air and Space Museum is also a site museum. Le Bourget indeed has a rich history; it saw all the world’s aviation heroes, including Charles Lindbergh and was the birthplace of commercial aviation. Le Bourget boasts a number of buildings of cultural interest, such as the terminal building and its Art Deco architecture.
