Went to the 2-5 year old section. Positives: my little one loved it, but cried being shunted out to leave after 1 hour of play. Cons: (1) 25 euros for me and my 2 year old to have just over 1 hour of play. Ridiculously...More

it was expensive for the low quality, boring exhibits. nothing really interesting for the kids. they run around a bit, but overall, tiresome waste of time. The store is an extreme rip-off for garbage you can find half the price at any mall.

there is actually 2 parts - one for small kids and other for bigger. You need to reserve your 90 minutes and even then inside it is very noisy and full of kids, so it is impossible to try all attractions in the time limits...More

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
