The Air and Space Museum is the largest aeronautical museum in France. Inaugurated in 1919, it is also the oldest and largest infrastructure of this kind in the world. This museum is dedicated to both aeronautics and aerospace. It houses all kinds of flying machines that have marked aviation history and French and global space exploration. It is the only museum in possession of two Concorde aircraft. In February 2017, an Airbus A380 joined the collection. The museum is situated 8 km from Paris, near Paris-Le Bourget Airport, and is divided into two zones.

The site of the former Air Force base in Dugny, covering 130,000 m², serves as a hangar to store part of the collection and as a workshop for machine restoration.

This museum showcases one of the world's most impressive collections of flying machines, including prototypes, iconic aircraft, and all-original models. The facility offers interactive exhibits that allow visitors to relive key moments in aviation history.

The Romainville Fort
The Romainville Fort is a fortified rampart built as part of the fortification of Paris in the 19th century. It is located in the L'Avenir district of Les Lilas commune. The name Romainville comes from the fact that the city of Les Lilas was attached to Romainville until July 24th, 1867. The fort was constructed between 1844 and 1846 by order of Adolphe Thiers. It spans a surface area of roughly 27 hectares. Inside the fort, there are facilities for the accommodation of eight officers, barracks for 300 soldiers, powder stores, an infirmary, a kitchen, and other casemates for various uses. The Fort served as a refuge for the people of Les Lilas and the inhabitants of surrounding communes during the Franco-Prussian War. It was occupied by French troops until June 12th, 1940. The Second World War marked a turning point in the history of Romainville Fort. Falling into the hands of the Germans, a Luftwaffe detachment settled there and used the place as an internment camp. By the end of 1940, the Germans interned enemy nationals, prisoners of war, and other individuals whom they did not plan to try in a military tribunal. Starting in August 1942, hostages were held there in retaliation against the Resistance. From 1943, Romainville Fort served as a point of departure for deportation. The number of people (both women and men) detained at the site reached 7,000 during these 3 and a half years.
Things to See at Romainville Fort
Currently, the fort hosts commemorations and tributes to the victims of deportation. Visitors can go there to pay respects, to visit the historic site, or to try to comprehend these dark hours of history. One can also observe and attempt to decipher the entanglement of graffiti that has remained intact in casemate No. 17. These murals were created by internees using makeshift materials. After study and cross-referencing, 53 of the 135 legible inscriptions could be attributed to identifiable authors. Presently, a TV wave transmission tower is erected within the fort.
The National Archives of Pierrefitte
The National Archives are a public institution that preserves the archives of the central organs of the French State. The establishment of these archives was mandated by a decree of the Constituent Assembly dating back to 1790. The headquarters of the Archives is located at 59, Rue Guynemer in Pierrefitte-sur-Seine, in the Seine-Saint-Denis department. Together with its two other sites in Paris and Fontainebleau, the National Archives holds the history of France from the 7th century to the present day. Only the Ministries of Defense, Finance, and Foreign Affairs maintain their own archives. It should be noted that the construction of the current National Archives of Pierrefitte-sur-Seine was necessitated by the saturation and decay of the archives in Paris and Fontainebleau. The Pierrefitte-sur-Seine site is a newly constructed building designed by Italian architect Massimiliano Fuksas, who has advised Roissy-Charles-de-Gaulle airport and is known for projects like the Armani Store in Tokyo and the Zenith in Strasbourg. The building is 160 meters long and 38 meters high, with 10 floors. It offers 60,000 square meters of usable space and 310 seats in its reading rooms. The building was inaugurated by the President of the Republic, François Hollande, on 11th February 2013 and has been open to the public since 21st February 2013.
What to See in the National Archives
The National Archives house all the documents of the successive political regimes in France from the 7th century to the present. These documents can be accessed by the public. They include the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen, the successive Constitutions of the Republic, Napoleon's Will, Louis XVI's Journal, the Trial of the Templars, Merovingian Papyri, and more. In total, the Pierrefitte-sur-Seine archives contain 320 kilometers of linear archives.
