We visited the Cite many years ago when we had a 10-yr old grandson with us on his first visit to France. We felt he had had enough of castles, museums, churches, view and boat rides. At the time it was very incomplete; there was no Cite de Musique. The Pompidou-like factory facade was encouraging. There was a curious "fountain" out front (discuss force and gravity?).
