  THE HISTORY

  One of the world's largest and most visited science museums, La Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is on an impressive modern site in northeastern Paris. The Parc de la Villette is a unique area of culture and leisure in Paris. Offering a wide variety of exhibitions and shows, this cultural crossroads is also a lovely park, with gardens surrounding the Ourcq canal. La cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is located at the top of the park, and is a masterwork of modern architecture. Nearby, you will find play-grounds for children, la grande halle - a giant hall for exhibitions and shows, the national conservatory of music and dance, and the "folies" - small red buildings housing mini-exhibits and snack bars.

Among its several features are:

-THE EXPLORA where you can pilot an airplane, step inside of a camera, travel throughout the human body, visit the Ariane rocket, and much much more.
-THE ARGONAUTE, an attack submarine open to visitors.
-The GEODE, one of the world's largest geodesic domes, and Franc's first Omnimax movie theatre equiped with a 1000 square metre screen.
-THE PLANETARIUM
-THE CINAXE, a simulator outfitted with the same equipment used to train airplane pilots and train engineers.
