  • Very fine museum where both adults and children learn a lot and strong visual character makes that language no barrier.

  • The plane of Clément Ader in the engine of the rocket Ariane, the bus to steam to the automatic metro, without forgetting the history of the sciences (including computer science), and trades that we evolved to include changes in habitat, along with Paris,. Exciting for young and old. The guided tour is a real plus.

  • Very nice and very interesting Museum for young and old. Allow time to enjoy the visit without hurrying. We had 1 h 30 before us which we have unfortunately not enough to enjoy because we could not see everything, but we will return.

  • Museum of technologies, instruments and inventions. I found it to be very interesting. Among many fascinating exhibits from several centuries of history of science, you can find here real Foucault pendulum, model of the Statues of Liberty, old vehicles.
  • Very cool place with lots of scientific and industrial items on display. Well worth a few hours if you are interested in that sort of thing. They have an English guide map but very few displays are labeled in anything other than French.
  • Science and technology met at this museum. Easy to visit in a couple of hours. Great for a rainy afternoon.
  • One of my personal favorite museum in paris. much less crowded then bigger and more famous options in the fity . Must visit if you are curious about history of science and industry. nice cafe serving brunch and lunch as well!
  • Amazing, especially if you're into science. Free for people under 26 living in the EU
