ABOUT AND HISTORY

La Villette, la Cité des Sciences

One of the world's largest and most visited science museums, La Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is on an impressive modern site in northeastern Paris. The Parc de la Villette is a unique area of culture and leisure in Paris. Offering a wide variety of exhibitions and shows, this cultural crossroads is also a lovely park, with gardens surrounding the Ourcq canal. La cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is located at the top of the park, and is a masterwork of modern architecture.
Nearby, you will find play-grounds for children, la grande halle - a giant hall for exhibitions and shows, the national conservatory of music and dance, and the "folies" - small red buildings housing mini-exhibits and snack bars.


Among its several features are:
• The Explora where you can pilot an airplane, step inside of a camera, travel throughout the human body, visit the Ariane rocket, and much much more.
• The Argonaute an attack submarine open to visitors.
• The Géode, one of the world's largest geodesic domes, and Franc's first Omnimax movie theatre equiped with a 1000 square metre screen.

La Géode

La Géode opened on 6 May 1985.
La Géode is located in the north-east of Paris in a vast 55-hectare green area called the Parc de la Villette.
La Géode opened its doors one year before the Science and Industry Park, the opening of which on 13 March 1986 coincided with the passing through of Halley's comet.
La Géode houses France's leading movie theatre, number one by dint of the number of people visiting it, entirely devoted to the projection of large scale films on its giant 1 000 m2 hemispheric screen.
Architect : Adrien Fainsilber
