A Bit of History

Since 1975 France's Air and Space Museum has delighted the world with a host of attractions. The museum was originally situated in Meudon, founded right after WWI. It moved to the Bourget in 1975. Why Bourget? Well it just happens to be the place where Charles Lindburgh landed after his 33 hour flight from Long Island.

The Main Gallery, where the oldest aircraft are displayed, offers a collection of over 180 machines giving a complete panorama of the aerospace era, from the original "heavier than air" glider Massiat-Biot (1879) to the Ariane rocket. Connected to the Main Hall is a remodeled building which was once the Le Bourget air terminal. Here you will find a unique collection of flying machines which once belonged to some of aviation's most storied pioneers: Santos-Dumont, Farman, Bleriot, Fabre, Garros and the WWI flying aces. Five other halls facing Le Bourget's runways depict the conquest of the air from the period between the two world wars up until the present day.
