Palais de la Découverte

Share This

Originally part of the Grand Palais, but now cut off from the main nave, the Palais de la Découverte is a science museum founded as late as 1937 for the Universal Exposition that year. Although it should have been closed just afterwards, the museum remained open, trying to show actual scientific experiments being made in the hope of spurring young adults into deciding a career in science. Whether or not it succeeded is difficult to say, but the the slightly austere nature of the place had been gradually softened, no doubt assisted by the success of the (much more fun) Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie at La Villette. Still seen as a bit intense or fuddy duddy, the museum keeps a mostly educative role, suffering from a slight inferiority complex compared to La Villette. We think that the building is well worth visiting, and although the very young might find the place daunting and dull, young adults (and trainee nerds) will find much to interest them here.
