Member Rating 4 out of 5 by sylvia13 on June 22, 2006

La Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie is one of the world's largest science museums and it is a masterwork of modern architecture. The museum now occupies what used to be the Paris slaughterhouse building. It is situated on an impressive green area in northeastern Paris and constitutes an area of culture and leisure, which offers a variety of exhibitions and shows. There are many parks around and also playgrounds for children.

The web addresses are:

http://www.cite-sciences.fr/english/indexFLASH.htm

Both sites in English

It took a while to get there but the next morning we went to the Science Museum. It was modern, efficient, and very educational, I found. The kids were interested in the exhibits, but also in the souvenir shop at the end! I particularly liked their books section, as they seemed to have reading matter about just everything!
