Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie - Science and Industry Centre
City of Knowledge.
Situated just North of the Parc de la Villette and known to be the largest communications, technology and science centre in Europe, the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie enjoys an excellent reputation and draws numerous visitors every day. Some would say it was destiny, or good luck, as the inauguration on March 13th 1986 was organised on the night of the passage of Halley's comet…
This expansive centre is at once an educational hub and a multimedia library for research or leisure, with a children's centre, or Cité des enfants which holds many exhibitions for all the family to enjoy. The Cité des Métiers area is itself a stepping stone for young professionals, organising numerous exhibitions dedicated to particular professional sectors. The Cité also hosts numerous exhibitions, debates, talks, meet up and round tables organised by researchers, scientists, and professionals from all walks of life and from all over the world.
