Ant:

How do ants form colonies? Learn about these organized insects with a giant ant figurine and model ant hill.

What makes you, You?:

Find out what happens before birth, why our bodies develop and how genetics influence who you are.

Physics phenomena:

Explore the laws of physics with the zigzag light box, Pythagorean theorem, gears, magnets and more!

Voice pipes:

Whisper through the tubes! Discover the technology that people used to communicate across distances.

Sugars… in the body:

Senses:

Listen, see, touch, smell and taste! With our five senses, we perceive the surrounding world and adapt to changes in our environment. Flex your sensory muscles in this exhibition dedicated to touch, smell and sight.

  • Good place to let your children discover and understand some physics and chemical things . The stuff was good in accompaniment and explaining to kids . Not a big museum,but enough .  more »
  • Have you heard of a place where they charge parents for attending puppet show?? Rude staff and complete ripoff for a c- place  more »
  • Produced in partnership with La Villette (place of dissemination of scientific and technical culture in Paris), Planet discovery offers a real Science Museum for children and a huge space in the city center. Many activities are available free for 2 years and workshops are organized every day by professionals. Follow the program... Bonus: The puppet show is of excellent quality.

  • The kids enjoyed the place a lot, the sections are divers and fits many age categories , the full tour is 1.5 hours and the ticket is 17000LP per kid, parents can join for free. There are biology, science , and physics sections, and a building area. There is an art workshop for extra charge.
  • This place needs definitely some maintenance. The idea of scientific discoveries for the kids is perfect. The experience tools/machines that are there are either not working properly or at the end of their life. They also mixed the area for under 10 years old with the area for over 10 years old. This makes small children play with things that are not intended to them. The WC are open; without doors. I didn't get the reason behind it, but it is really embarrassing for young children to sit in front of all that enter the WCs.
  • A good place and well organized
  • Its a nice and clean place. There is plenty of interesting information and playarea for toddlers. BUT THE ENTRANCE IS EXPENSIVE
  • It's a cool kids-friendly scientific museum. A great place to educate your kids while having fun! All the exhibitions are imported from France. You can find about the ant, the bee, the teeth, the 5 senses, the human body and many more... Besides the exhibition and the workshops, there's a cute puppet show by Mrs Nayla Khayyat. You can make your child's birthday also and you won't regret it!
