Why locals love it
Located in the Parc de la Villette leisure complex that covers an area of 55 hectares, this place hosts various exhibitions on science and innovation and lots of activities for kids. It's also home to a planetarium, an aquarium, a library and even a submarine! It's a fun place to learn about the sciences, nature and technology.
Why you should visit it
It's one of the largest science museums in Europe. The futurist architecture of the building is pretty interesting, especially the 3D cinema "La Géode" which is a sphere that spans 36 metres in diameter and is entirely covered of mirrors. After your visit you can take a walk in the park or visit the cinema to enjoy the gigantic hemispheric screen!
It’s an inclusive place that caters to those with disabilities and there are various exhibitions that stimulate senses other than sight and hearing.
