  • An exeptional place of scientific popularization. Very playful for children... and adults. A place of great wealth. A must-see activity for families passing through Paris. I also recommend the planetarium.

  • It takes at least two days to tour the many exhibitions, workshops and animations. Four if you take your kids and teens! You are not alone (euphemism) but the space is large enough and well-appointed not to walk on your feet. Tip: even if everything is very playful, you have to target a specific program, not want to do everything at the risk of scattering and quickly sactivity.

  • It's pretty neat. Lot's of stuff to see and interact with - you need to give yourself plenty of time though to check it out. We were there for some time and didn't get to see everything, that's for sure. I would check it out for yourself and give yourself 4-5 hours (with a break). Nice people who run it too!
  • Wonderful experience, after my first visit, I decided to have an annual card with my son. Many exhibitions to see and there is always something new to discover.
