Our Insiders' Article

Cite des Sciences: promoting science, research and technology

La Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie (Science and Industry City), located in the Parc de la Villette, is the biggest science museum in Europe.
It is dedicated to spreading scientific and technological knowledge among the people, especially children, and to promote public interest in science, research and technology.
Included in the museum are a planetarium, an IMAX theater (La Géode) and a submarine (l’Argonaute S6036).

Making the most of it: avoid school outings

Access to Cité des Sciences can be done through the main entrance next to the subway station Porte de la Villette.
You can also take the rear entrance next to the canals, large grass fields, the IMAX theater and the submarine.
School outings generally take place weekday mornings, so head out to the Cité des Sciences in the afternoon for a quieter visit. Tickets are valid the whole day, which enables visitors to go out (for lunch) and come back for more.
There is a dedicated spot for children between 2 and 12 years old: la Cité des Enfants (Kid’s City), offering attractions for the little ones. Inquire at the ticket office for more details.

Explora Collection: 11 interactive scientific departments

The highlight of the Cité des Sciences is the Explora Collection, with highly interactive attractions perfect to entertain the little ones when travelling in Paris with kids.
The collection is built around 11 different themes: Math, Image, Sound, Light, Space Exploration, Genetics, Ocean, Energy, Transportation, Rocks and Volcanoes, Stars and Galaxies etc.
The different departments are located around the main central hall, which makes it easy for navigation in and out of the science departments.
The Cité des Sciences also welcomes interesting temporary exhibitions related to science.

Curiosities: from Einstein to the stars

Here are some departments that should not be missed for their interest and beauty:
The Light department, with all the spectacular optical illusions
The Genetics department, perfect to clearly understand biology and the DNA code.
The Stars and Galaxies department and its fascinating décor
Not included in the tickets but also very interesting are the museum’s planetarium, the Argonaute submarine and the IMAX theater (La Géode). Tickets are sold separately at the museum’s main ticket office.

Restaurants: a greenhouse above the restaurant

A small restaurant is located on the 1st floor of the Cité des Sciences.
The particularity of this restaurant is that it has a greenhouse above it, which can be visited. The restaurant sells snacks and drinks, which you can choose to eat in the restaurant or on one of the benches of the greenhouse.
You will find a Burger King on the basement floor and other restaurants or snack bars outside the building.

Conclusion: perfect for kids

This area, which was once an animal market and the slaughterhouse of Paris, was rehabilitated in 1980 as a leisure area.
The museum opened in 1986, as well as other buildings such as a concert halls, exhibition halls and the music museum (Cité de la Musique).
2015 saw the opening of the Philharmonie de Paris, a beautiful classical music hall. With a children’s playground (Jardin des Dunes et des Vents), an outdoor movie theater in summer and large grass fields and canals, the Parc de la Villette and the Cité des Sciences will undoubtedly please your children.
