We really enjoyed the temporary exhibit of the Special Affects (we spent a lot of time there). The planetarium show (Rosetta) was very good, but it was given in French and I don't believe there were translators available. The IMax was also excellent (we saw...More

We are very pleased you liked it! We are sorry you didn't find the audioguides for the planetarium, they do exist in many languages. They can be collected at the information desk on the first floor. We hope you'll come back!!! Have a nice stay...More

I visited this museum way back in 1992, but returning it doesn't seem to be as good as some other museums I've visited. There were some galleries I spent a lot of time in (such as the sound gallery and the optical illusions), but on...More

Big impressive building, but little use to go there if you don't speak French. The exhibitions are made for kids, so I guess French kids will have a ball!

I've been there two times and I love it. The main attractions for me are the singing piano (you can playwith your feet) and the virtual drum for the sound exposition. Aso the brain games and the special effects have been very interesting.

Good museum. I was able to get audios in Spanish for my son. We were very lucky to be able to go during a special effects experience. As parents we love it and our son had the best time!

If you are not a child, you will probably find it boring. The most important thing, is that if you don't speak French, just don't go.

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
