  • Very expensive for what we can do. The kids are gone hyper frustrated not being able do that 3 box on the 6 because of the time limit (1 h 30) while the proposed activities need to spend more time!

  • Long wait before the session (even weekdays except holidays School of Paris), so we bought a ticket Geode to pass the time. Impressive crowd. No respect for others (adults and children), requires to queue at each workshop. The quota for the number of people should be reduced. Activity a bit simple for our 8 year old daughter who at just as we considered the activity a little "baby" for her age. Make a rainy may day. We expected better.

  • Great place to introduce children in Paris. When the weather is not clemente and nes kids ' not yet interested in museums, that's what distract them playfully. 2-7 years old city is rich of experiences and discoveries for the little ones. Understand his body, emotions, space... discover the elements of water air light, imitate adults on a construction site... than pleasure to discover. The space of the 2-7 works on schedule, arrive on time to enjoy. The library is also very nice for a quieter time. Damage, exposure need a specific ticket, so an extra paiemeng. The aquarium interested children but leave the adult on its end. The dressing room is a very good idea when it is loaded with a little walk, we have to think about its business, so we take full advantage.

  • The personel is not very friendly, they do the minimum required, but nothing more, they rather sit and chat. We visited section 2-6 years with 2 kids. Not all the activities were functional due to lack of maintenance. Some activities were chaotic as kids didn't quite understand what to do. Too expensive as parents also need to pay and the functionality or interest of the employees is poor.
  • Every time I went to Paris with my son when he was a child, this was one of our fav places. You can spend a whole day because there is much to see and do. It's fun for children and for adults as well.
  • I had the worst experience in this place on July 23 2015.The lack of professionalism from the same team is monumental. I show up with a group of children aging from 3 to 11 years old. The sale rep tell me that the younger one need to be accompanied at all time. It's understandable. There is two sections, little kids and big ones. When i try to leave my big kids in their section to go to the little one's They refuse to let me leave without bringing the whole group. The gate keeper ( a rude woman who act like prison guard) tell me that it's for security reason. I understand that but why wasn't I told by the cashier? I told him my age group and didn't tell me that i had to accompanied ALL my kids. If he did, I would had made some arrangements. Instead I spent 1 hour in one section and 20mn in the other one. I wasted €37+parking and gas. The children didn't fully take advantage of the facility. I filled a complaint but no response so far and i don't think i will ever get one. Just because of a lack of professionalism. Beware if you decide to go there. You should go spend your time and money somewhere else.
  • We have been to both age groups and so much enjoyed it (and our kids even more!!!); its playful, learnful, great quality exhibits and not overcrowded.
  • So much fun! Went to the exhibition for 2-7 years. It is timed, so arrive accordingly ( plenty of time to do all activities with a few meltdowns too)
