Very interesting museum with many models of scientific discoveries. The exhibits are arranged by theme with a good flow. You might spend a couple of hours or even more if you want to look at each sections in detail

We really liked this place! We like antiques and if this were a store we would have loved to take stuff home! Lots of old machinery, tools and inventions. Wish we had had more time to linger here

I have a Ph.D. in Computer Science and Engineering, so it is natural that I am biased toward technical side. With that said, this museum is so much better than other attractions in Paris (including Louvre). This place has well designed themes and detailedly explained...More

Set in delightful buildings that used to be a beautiful monastery, the impressive collection tells the story, in a simple but effective way, of how different forms of scientific technology have developed since the 18th century. Included are aeroplanes, magically hanging from the ceilings, motor...More
