  • We went here with Norwegian friends Sunday and we found this place very well done, with a lot of practical workshops and a quite similar planetarium of the palate of the discovery in Paris except for the fact that it's someone who explains the sky and the constellations and not a film. The only downside for us french, the language because even if some things are translated, it is often too technical to understand and the planetarium is only explained in Norwegian. But we all enjoyed especially our children from 8 to 15 years.
