Science Museum

Highly recommended
This temple to the sciences - 5 floors covering 5ha in all - is remarkable for the richness of its collections, and for the methods it employs to engage visitors, through its exhibits, interactive displays and experiments. If pushed for time - and remember, a whole day is not enough to see everyting - be aware that the Synopsis Gallery provides a vivid presentation of the museum's highlights. The aeronautical exhibits on the third floor are also worth seeking out.
