Great place for kids, with interactive avtivities that help them understand a lot about science and maths. You definetely need a lot of hours to see most of it. I wish we could visit it again!

What a cool place to visit! Very good demonstrations and exhibitions with a practical layout that allows you to move through without getting too bogged down. We will bring friends back the next time we're in Paris. The 9 Euro charge was definitely one of the best values for touring in Paris.

Went there with my 7y.o.son who's into planes, technique, etc. Sat. and Sunday, two entire days. No Louvre, no similar hype targets. We still talk about it, 2 years from visit. So many activities, so many excellent things never seen anywhere. I bought the tickets well ahead. If I ever return to Paris - it'll be for cite de sciences... More

Our kids (10, 8 and 4) had a most enjoyable time at this museum. Whilst the standing exhibits were of limited (albeit it some) interest to them, it was the interactive children's area that they loved - there are 2, one for 2-5 years and a separate one for 5-12 years and we only tried the latter. You have to... More

This sightseeing was found interesting and it needs a whole day. There are various sections and levels. It is at Porte de la Villette close to the metro station. The visit was enjoyable. The only thing we disliked were the smelly public toilets which were a bit out of order. It is worth visiting, and it was somewhat a bit... More

Lots of space but very few actual exhibits. Superficial, trivial and not a patch on the Musee des Arts et Metiers. If you're interested in science and engineering, it will probably make you angry. If you want somewhere for the kids to run around in with a few "Ooh, ah!" moments then it might be worth while

I came here alone in March 2014 and I must say that although I spent an entire day here, I bought tickets to only 3 expositions and I also visited a submarine, but the time wasn't enough. There are many, many awesome things to visit but it would definitely be more fun if you'd had someone to share them with.... More

I took my 2-year old son for his birthday to the Children's experience at Le Cite. It is not cheap, something like €20 for one adult. However, it is extremely imaginative : both for young ones and even for adults. There's A LOT to take in , in the 90 minutes that a single session takes; I don't think we... More

Great place to go, alone or with family. Lots of interactive things to see ,do, make, touch...My daughter and I enjoyed it very much! The only thing is that you need at least half a day to make it....almost all. Better to buy tickets in advance,or to visit it with Paris museum pass,even though there are some temporary exhibitions for... More
