We were 3 adults with one child aged 12, the person on reception knew this and sold us access to the "horloge" experience (all about body clocks/nature etc). We paid 17€ for the 4 of us and must have spent 15 minutes trying to figure...More

Hello, We are very sorry to discover your disappointment. The "Clock" exhibition is however a good experience for 3 adults and one child : did you use the free audioguide presented at the intrance ?

Had a lot of fun doing their Luminopolis Exhibit! The instructor even spoke English and explained how it all works. There are multiple difficulties so it is great for all ages. Definitely recommend for anyone in the area!

The most interesting part was squeezing through the door of the tent. Then we sat on cushions while an "entertainer" explained the night sky in French. After 29 minutes we squeezed back out again . Really not worth €5 for an adult! Sitting outside on...More

A complete loss of time on a beautiful day. We love science, but my 3 daughters and I got sooooo bored. Some Fortunately it is not that expensive: about 10 euros each for 2 third world exhibitions.More

We went in just to see the mummies, special show. In fact most exhibits were fakes (tutankhamun?) But the captions didn't say, so it was hard to trust what were probably the few real exhibits. There were English captions, printed smaller specially to make them...More

It looks like a good place to hold children's birthday parties and they do have a wee kitchen for kids to learn how to cook French Toast. But the exhibition on geology was mostly a bunch of cartoons and silly games.

A place where the teenies see science in action. Done in a nice way, without speaking French it is somehow limited. Nice mixture of informing, entertaining and including the kids. For adults it is not boring.
