  • MAM offers a very nice development of the techniques classified by departments (transport, energy, etc). The collections are really interesting and offer many items all well described. The place is just as magical and relaxing for a visit in good conditions.

  • 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
