Read MoreShow Less
Fittingly located within the Paris-Le Bourget business airport, the Air and Space Museum is one of the world’s largest and oldest museums dedicated to aeronautics. Inside the cavernous hanger, there’s a planetarium with flight simulators, and more than 150 aircraft—including a 747, Concorde, DC3, Mirage, and an Ariane rocket—displayed alongside rare aviation memorabilia dating back as far as the 16th century.
More highlights include the Ballooning Era, where you learn about the history of hot-air and gas balloon flight, and Planete Pilote, where young visitors take the controls of a space station. Explore the Air and Space Museum along with dozens more of the city’s top attractions with a Paris Museum Pass or Paris Pass. Passes come in 2–6-day versions and include unlimited public transportation on select services, and free sightseeing tours such as hop-on hop-off buses and a cruise along the Seine River.
