The most interesting part was squeezing through the door of the tent. Then we sat on cushions while an "entertainer" explained the night sky in French. After 29 minutes we squeezed back out again . Really not worth €5 for an adult! Sitting outside on...More

We went in just to see the mummies, special show. In fact most exhibits were fakes (tutankhamun?) But the captions didn't say, so it was hard to trust what were probably the few real exhibits. There were English captions, printed smaller specially to make them...More

It looks like a good place to hold children's birthday parties and they do have a wee kitchen for kids to learn how to cook French Toast. But the exhibition on geology was mostly a bunch of cartoons and silly games.

A place where the teenies see science in action. Done in a nice way, without speaking French it is somehow limited. Nice mixture of informing, entertaining and including the kids. For adults it is not boring.
