An air terminal turned museum
The Musée de l’Air et de l’Espace (Air and Space Museum) at Le Bourget is the largest museum dedicated to civil and military aeronautics in France. The former Art deco terminal building is one of the last remaining examples of the first generation of airport buildings in Europe. In 1935, France launched a competition to build a new terminal at the Le Bourget airport. Georges Labro’s project was chosen, thanks to its clean lines.
