"A huge complex on the edge of the city" Parks, Gardens, & Squares Tip by Imbi

Parks, Gardens, & Squares, Paris: 62 reviews and 76 photos


Favorite thing: Situated at the Parc de la Villette, this amazing architectural achievement of pharaonic proportions offers an all-round perspective on science, technology and industry. It is organised into different sections: Explora, with its choice of small thematic islands and interactive discoveries to make; the children's area, for ages 3-12; the planetarium, with a range of animation and shows; the cinaxe, a simulation room that enables you to follow every movement projected onto the screen; all that and many more surprises. Another major element is the Géode, the famous, mirrored globe that reflects its surroundings and houses a hemispherical projection room.
