Inside this modern Museum of Science and Industry you’ll find permanent exhibitions on the universe, mathematics, transportation and more, plus regularly rotating temporary exhibitions. Inside this big sister to the Palais de la Découverte, families will also love the fabulous Cité des Enfants, a totally hands-on science adventure playground with hands-on exhibits including a water zone, mock recording studio, construction zone and much more. There are two distinct areas, for 2-7 year olds and 5-12 year olds, so parents with kids in two different age groups better bring another adult! Reservations highly recommended.
