    And Yes, to allow time for the visit to this museum very provided. Also plan what refuel you, indeed no cafeteria but places for Spades fuck. A lot to see very interesting in all areas. Pamphlet provided in french on important, but only in English and Italian works in the rooms.

    Large and small, you will spend pleasant moments before the evolution of every item in our daily lives (telephone, radio, movies, calculating machine, trains, submarines...). And what joy to see materialized the inventions of Leonardo Da Vinci. Pure happiness. Hand to provide 3 hours because the Museum is huge.

  • One of the best science museums I've ever visited. Good for families and very interactive for kids. You need a whole day to complete all the parts of the museum.
  • Bit of a let down. I would choose just a few exhibitions and head to those because the museum is huge and you can run into the problem of being inundated with information. Most exhibits are in English, except for the computing exhibition featured Alan Turing's inventions. The da Vinci gallery left a lot to be desired. It's focused on him as an inventor but I think would be more interesting if people could interact with the exhibits. Most of the information gleaned just from placards and looking at the exhibits. I also had a submarine tour which I had to forgo because you're supposed to arrive 30 minutes ahead of your tour. Bummer.
  • Nice and big. You need lots of time there, and if you're coming with small kids you should check ahead of time for the mini labs. We had to wait in a long line to be let in, but definitely check out the church next door. Most exhibits are translated to English. Great museum!
  • Expositions quality: 1/1, detailed and interesting in most cases. Expositions variety: 1/1, many different fields of science, not very large but felt complete. Price/quality ratio: 1/1, very small price for a good museum. Service: 0.75/1, there's not much offered except vending machines and toilets (and the usual exit shop). Hygiene: 1/1 Total: 5/5 stars Recommendation: if it's still there, take a look at the exposition about quantum mechanics ("Extreme"), then do a tour of the angry machines area about metals industry. Extra: most things in some areas can be touched, it's an interesting thing, different from most museums.
  • Vast museum covering a huge range. Plenty to see including a good Leonardo di Vinci section. Can be confusing to navigate around sometimes hence only 4 stars but well worth it
