Meeting Point
We will plan to meet just inside of the museum entrance at 12pm, where we’ll wait for approximately 15 minutes. Please gather around the meeting point before exploring the museum as we’ll do that together! Before you can get to the meeting point though, you’ll need to obtain a ticket to enter the museum. Prices are listed below:

  • Museum + Planes Entrance (4-18 y/o): 6,00€
  • Museum + Planes Entrance (19-25 y/o): 8,00€
  • Museum + Planes Entrance (26+ y/o): 16€
  • Museum Entrance only (Ages up to 26 y/o): Free

These prices include plane entrance, or “boarding passes”. The boarding passes allow you go go inside some of the aircraft, like the 747 or concorde. You’ll be required to prove your age if you purchase age specific tickets.

You can either obtain these tickets online or on the day. However, the museum recommends purchasing your tickets ahead of time through their website. You can purchase tickets HERE.

I heard they were going to a Toronto meetup shortly after the Paris meetup, but it’s very likely there will be a meetup in Miami next year.
