We got lucky to get in with zero queue that day as it was the royal wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle and everyone was probably on TV. So we had the whole museum almost private! Subjects are interesting but I believe they should...More
French or English is obligatory
If you decide to go there be prepared to read. A lot. In English or in French. Even though there are some interactive exponats, mostly it is all about information, delivered in a contemporary and interesting manner. When we were...More
Informative, interesting, fun. Lots of presentations during the day, for all ages. We went for the Louis Pasteur exhibit, but ended up spending a whole day at this wonderful museum of sciences. Only bemol, if you plan to go with kids: explanations are in French,...More
We set aside half a day to explore this area as we usually spend 3-4h at other science museums.
I must say, after 30min-45min, we were bored.
The panels and exhibits are presented in French. There's a lack of staff presence.
Everything looks dated.
If I were somewhere between the ages of 6-14, and spoke fluent French, and was interested in science whatsoever, this would be the place to go. Boundless amounts of interactive exhibits, though all in French.
I remember this museum from when I was a child. It is attractive for children who like science, but the exhibits are a bit dated and the experiments done live also belong from the last century. Perhaps good for children aged 6 or 7, but...More
I love science museums and this should have been one of the best. Compared with other museums there are a lot of lectures and demonstrations and these have a lot of talking in French - and I mean a lot. Two short demonstrations in half...More
A great experience on a cold and rainy morning. We walked in with the intention to spend only limited time, but ended up in enjoying the experiments for more than a couple of hours. It's fun and really worth the visit.
This area is characterized by its namesake avenue which extends northwest from the Louvre to the modern business district, punctuated by the iconic Arc de Triomphe. Grand embassies stand among impressive offices and presidential palaces; architecture from 19th century Universal Exhibitions, homes, art galleries, and 19th century streets designed by Baron Haussmann flank haute-couture boutiques. This
neighborhood never rests, buzzing with visitors from around the world at all times of day and night, all within a stone's throw of the Seine.

As far as I know, there are no combined tickets for the Palais de la Decouverte and other museums. Children under 6 can go in for free. There are no tours in french or in English. There are "demonstrations" in french (of electro magnetic current, and the like). My 11 year old grandson followed perfectly well, even though he doesn't speak french. On their website, they warn that the museum is not air-conditioned and that it may be very warm inside in the summer (France just went through a severe heat wave). They distribute bottles of water at the entrance.
