La Villette - 19e Arrondissement


At the heart of the largest landscaped park in Paris, there is an original and spectacular place. You just have to step foot inside to explore the countless secrets of science, to multiply unusual experiences, to dive into the infinite possibilities of image...
At the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, curiosity brings children and adults to thousands of joys of discovery. The Cité des Enfants offers two exhibitions (2-7yrs and 5-12yrs) to learn whilst playing: you can build a house, play with water fountains and much more in the recently renovated Cité. Even parents will find it hard to leave!
