A huge mix of science-themed exhibits, a lot of which are interactive. Unfortunately some of the exhibits are broken, and some areas (Mathematics, I'm looking at you) could sorely do with a bit of modernisation, but it's a very good activity, particularly for families. Most...More

An excellent exhibition on special effects and a smaller but diverting one on 'cold'. It's a little way out and if you leave the centre in the dark, good luck finding the metro, the signposting and exterior lighting is pretty poor. Good place to take...More

Interesting for people that want to know about ancient sciences and industry. Nicely build showrooms, active people at helpdesk and at the inside.

This is a great place. Only it is so huge you need to plan in advance what to visit and what to skip. Also, Cité des enfantes is great for small kids, the Otter stuff is mostly for older kids and adults.

We finally found time to visit this museum as a result of very wet weather during our December 2017 trip to Paris. Aware that this is a National Museum we had anticipated that our day would be very full. The Museum is a short distance...More

We go there 1 or 2 times a year depending on the temporary exhibitions. The place is huge so you can easily plan a full day. Usually we take the 'explora' tickets + some extra like "cité des enfants" or "la geode" (imax movies). You...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime
explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
