What to Expect From The Museum of Air and Space

The museum has a collection of more than 150 aircrafts and a wide range of aviation paraphanalia from as far back as the 16th century

Indeed, it is divided into eras.

There is an era before World War II which has a lot of history, prototype aircrafts from the 50s and 60s, French military, and space exploration.

It’s even more interesting to to know that all machines on display are the originals.  From the airplanes and aerostatic materials, engines and propellers, weapons, as well as objects, archives and the clothes.

A Travel Quote…

“Climb the mountain not to plant your flag, but to embrace the challenge, enjoy the air and behold the view. Climb it so you can see the world, not so the world can see you.”~ David McCullough Jr.
