it was expensive for the low quality, boring exhibits. nothing really interesting for the kids. they run around a bit, but overall, tiresome waste of time. The store is an extreme rip-off for garbage you can find half the price at any mall.

there is actually 2 parts - one for small kids and other for bigger. You need to reserve your 90 minutes and even then inside it is very noisy and full of kids, so it is impossible to try all attractions in the time limits...More

We've been to Imaginosity in Dublin (which was very good) and Eureka in Halifax, even Kidzania - I thought this gave them all a great run for their money, beating Imaginosity for the simple reason of being all on the same level which made it...More

Visited the 7-12 part with our 6 year old. Expensive (25 euros for the 2 adults 1 kid) for 1.5 hour. Many stations broken/closed. The whole thing is quite old, run down, and not very interesting... I doubt any child above 7 would find it...More

Visited 7-12 years old section with 5, 6 and 10 year old and it was great and educational. Time is limited to 1.5 hrs but I think it is enough. Explora exhibitions upstairs are fantastic for kids and adults, highly recommend those.

This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science
museum, this area rewards daytime and nighttime

cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
