Description

At the Paris-Le Bourget airport north of Paris, the Museum of Air and Space, which is celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, houses an impressive collection of aircraft and spacecraft. Settle yourself comfortably inside the planetarium with the whole family; hop on board a Boeing 747 or the Concorde; try your hand at flight simulators and learn how to pilot a plane, discover legendary aircraft such as the Dakota, emblematic of the Second World War. Sitting inside the plane, you experience a unique situation, putting yourself in the shoes of an allied paratrooper at the time of landing. Stress, noise….. you will not be spared anything ! The museum is overflowing with fun and exciting activities for all.

A fun and educational experience

The free permanent exhibit delves into mankind’s dream of conquering the skies, from the mythical flight of Icarus, to the Concorde, plus flight machine prototypes. Paintings, photos and models will enlighten your understanding of these spectacular machines.

Discover the “Planète Pilote” area dedicated to activities for children ages 6-12-years-old, where kids can learn how to fly a plane using a flight simulator, sit inside a cockpit, or discover what life is like inside a real space station.

Bring the kids to the Space Exploration hall, where they will learn all about Spoutnik, Voyager and Apollo. The icing on the cake: space rocket models Ariane 1 and 5 are displayed outside the museum!

If your timing is right, every two years at the end of June, don’t miss the Salon du Bourget and its aerial demonstrations.

Night of Museums 2020

Who has never dreamt of contemplating the stars up close? Your wish will come true on the museum tarmac on the occasion of the 16th edition of the European Night of Museums: with the help of telescopes, observe Mars from 6 pm to 11 pm and Jupiter and Saturn from 8 pm.

Saturday 14 November: from 18:00 to 23:00, on the tarmac.
