The Planetarium – A trip to outer space


Visit the Planetarium at Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie and journey to outer space!

Now, this is something special to do with the kids. Or without them..I went with my other half and absolutely LOVED it!

The Planetarium at Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie take you on a 360 degree journey through space. It is, quite honestly, fascinating and breathtakingly beautiful.

With its high-resolution projection equipment, the Cité’s new Planetarium will take you on a thrilling journey to the outer reaches of the universe. Astronomy specialists will give illustrated talks and present 30-minute theatre shows. Surrounded by 360° computer-generated images, you’ll travel from planet to planet, explore the solar system, witness the creation of the universe and see how the Earth was formed. Not only will you learn more, you’ll also feel as if you really are in space! A spectacular immersive experience.

 They are continuously updating their film list with new and exciting adventures so be sure to check out the website to see what’s on.
I’d advise to book your ticket in advance, we went to see the film about the moon and it was full! We wouldn’t have gotten in had we not reserved our place before we went.

I cannot express enough how interesting these shows are. Children and adults alike are thrown into outer space and marvel at the images surrounding them.
