Parc de la Villette is the setting for this huge science museum best known for its Geode dome and impressive 180-degree cinema. Natural and scientific phenomena are explained with the help of exhibitions in an area specially designed with kids in mind. Children aged three and over can visit a real submarine, the Argonaute, and find out how it works; temporary exhibitions are organized in Espace Explora.

It's kind of strange to think about going to Paris for a science museum, but my bf and I had each already been to Paris before (separately), so we thought we'd do something a little off the beaten track (and extra nerdy) when we went together.
The science museum was a lot of fun. We kind of wasted a lot of time on a water filtration experiment, so by the time we got to all the cool stuff on like human behavior and various audio-sensory illusions, we were pretty scienced out. I wouldn't recommend spending longer than 2-3 hours here. English descriptions were provided for all of the exhibits had, so we had no problems at all understanding what was going on. A lot like the Exploratorium in San Francisco, but bigger, if anything. Worth checking out!
If you're interested in science and have a good grasp of French, this is a nice place to visit.
