The Musée de l’air et de L’espace (Air and Space museum) in Paris is a very interesting museum dedicated to the history of aviation and space flights.

The Air and Space museum is housed in a series of former hangars and in an imposing 1930s hall, the “Salle des 8 colonnes”, at the Le Bourget airport, just north of Paris.
The museums is particularly addressed to children and families but can be appreciated by all; on 150,000 square metres of exhibition area, it depicts the history of flight through various exhibits, from a large collection of real aircraft, models and various objects related to aviation to flight simulators, multimedia installations and hands-on exhibits. The museum notable collection of aircraft and spaceships includes rare airplanes dating back to early 20th century, a Concorde, an Ariane 5 rocket and a Soyuz spacecraft.

The museum also features a planetarium and includes a restaurant and a boutique.
The Musée de L’Air et de l’Espace is accessible to disabled visitors.
