Palais de la Découverte

Recommended
As a result of the diversity of its exhibits and workshops, this museum founded in 1937 by the physicist Jean Perrin has something for everyone. Scientific experiments are carried out here in front of the general public, enabling visitors to gain a better understanding of physics, chemistry, earth and life sciences, and astronomy. The most popular sections include the "school of rats", highlighting fundamental aspects of neuro-biology, and the planetarium, providing an insight into the stars.
