What to expect

The City of Science and Industry is located in Parc de la Villette. Since its creation in the 1970s, its mission has remained unchanged: to present the challenges related to scientific progress. It is particularly for its educational and playful exhibitions, many of which are designed especially for the family, that this establishment designed to stimulate curiosity is famous. On each floor, explanatory panels and ingenious devices allow you to learn more about topics as varied as mathematics, the protection of nature and the oceans, astronomy or the various sources of energy. The City of Science and Industry may be particularly crowded, particularly because of their exhibitions. To visit this Parisian cultural centre, it is recommended to book your entrance tickets in advance, especially if you wish to visit on weekends or during school holidays. Ticketeaser allows you to order your tickets without additional fees and to enjoy a queue-jump access.
