Maison de l'Air Museum In Paris

The Maison de l'Air basically translates to House of Air and is a unique little museum that is nestled into the hillside at the Parc de Belleville on the very outskirts of Paris and is dedicated to air and the quality of air in Paris.

In our every increasingly polluted world, the study of air and air quality is a serious subject, but the great thing about the Maison de l'Air is that it deals with these issues and atmospheric phenomena in a fun way for both adults and children alike, making this a more enjoyable experience.

Maison de l'Air Museum In Paris

La Maison de l'Air offers a permanent exhibition that is open to the public and they also have educational workshops for children but these are by prior arrangement, yet although the studies conducted here are of great importance, the exhibitions are colourful and interesting, even with kites displayed and used for demonstrations.

This particular museum in Paris is like no other and it allows you to explore the roles of air in our environment, from it being used to sustain life, allow birds to fly, allow plants to pollinate, the history of the atmosphere and what that means to us, through to pollution and what that is doing to our environment through air quality. 

Also included in the presentations are how insects and other creatures overcome gravity, how sound travels through the air and how odours are dispersed, which is a fascinating look at something we all take for granted.

There is a light and friendly atmosphere in this museum, which makes the exhibition both educational and fun, even though it is done in such a way as to make the general public more aware of their surroundings. 

Through satellite images available on the spot, you can view the air quality of Paris in real time, hour by hour, along with the weather as whole, plus there is a room that includes hands on instruments, which is fascinating and a fun way for all the family to become more aware of what is always around us.

The Maison de l'Air is open from April to September on a Tuesday to Friday from 1.30pm through to 5.30pm and at the weekends, it is open from 1.30pm through to 6,30pm.

In the months of October and March it is open on a Tuesday to a Sunday, from 1.30pm through to 5.30pm.

From November through to February, this Paris museum is open on a Tuesday to a Sunday from 1.30pm through 5pm.

Throughout the whole year it is always closed on Mondays and also all of the national holidays, but when it is open, the entrance is completely free, plus the nearest Metro station is the Pyrenees.
