  • Understatement for visits students at all levels but also educational. Available equipment for experimentation as well as explanations in each experiment or layout. Foucault pendulum, experiments engineering, electromagnetism, etc. Laboratory of chemistry and biology, Planetarium, and more. don't forget to cut and currency format as a souvenir for free. Enough 2-3 hours but could a student experiment for much more.
