Description

Every year in October or November, the Maison de l’Inde at the Cité Internationale Universitaire de Paris organizes a show of traditional Indian songs, music and dance, candlelit dinners and appetizers, and fireworks to celebrate Diwali, the Hindu Festival of Light. It’s the most important religious festival for Hindus around the world, and traditionally candles are lit, fireworks are set off, and gifts are given.

Cité des sciences et de l'industrie

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!
