Tube : Porte de la Villette (7) Tram.

The Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is the biggest science museum in Europe. Located in the Parc de la Villette, it is at the heart of the Cultural Center of Science, Technology and Industry, a center promoting science and science culture. It's the idyllic place to bring children but it's also a great place for adult in desire of learning more about science.

Attractions include a planetarium, a submarine (the Argonaute (S636)), an IMAX theatre (La Géode) built in 1985 and which is an architectural work of art besides being a very special movie and events theatre equipped with state-of-theart technical facilities : an OmnimaxTM projector and a 4K digital projection system.

The permanent exhibitions are divided into 12 different themes. Among them is transport and mankind which explores the theme of human mobility from a socio-technological perspective, focusing on changes in individual and public transport, network efficiency, traveller comfort and safety, technological innovation and eco-friendly behavior.

The Sounds section recreates a creative world were people will be able to use their capacity to listen to and identify ambient sounds, understand the physical nature of sound, try out new audio technologies with the latest tools developed by research laboratories, play with musical sound…

Will you be able to face the Mathematic room which displays some real-life and easy-to-grasp applications to help us to understand movement, calculate probability or model physical phenomena and more.

Finally you probably can't leave the place without a walk through the Great Story Of The Universe, an ambitious exhibition on two levels which takes visitors on a journey of discovery into the origins of the universe.

The most notable features of the "bioclimatic facade" facing the park are Les Serres - three greenhouse spaces each 32 metres high, 32 metres wide and 8 metres deep. The facades of Les Serres were the first structural glass walls to be constructed without framing or supporting fins.
