Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie, Paris: 26 reviews and 49 photos
The Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is the most famous building of la Villette. It was built by Adrien Fainsilber and inaugurated in the night of the 13th March 1986, on occasion of the transit of Halley's comet. It is a big parallelepipedon in iron and glass surrounded by water.
I visited it in 1998, when I visited Paris with my school and enjoyed it quite a lot, even if I would have preferred to visit the Louvre, where we didn't go due to lack of time.
Permanent exhibitions are set at the upper floors and can be reached from the central court. They deal with the most various domains of science and industry: biology, chemistry, engineering, aeronautics, medicine, and more. I would like to visit it again, when I return to Paris.
The Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is open from Tuesday to Saturday from 10 to 19 and on Sundays from 10 to 19.
