Palais de la découverte

Housed in an historic building just a short walk from the Champs-Elysées, the Palais de la Découverte opened for the International Exhibition of 1937. This legendary museum devoted to basic science is set in an architectural gem dating from the Belle Epoque and Art Deco periods.

These exceptional surroundings have played host to several generations of leading scientists.

The museum explores six disciplines: physics, chemistry, astronomy, mathematics, life and geophysical sciences across 30 rooms of displays.


The site is an exceptional place to make discoveries and interact with scientists. Every day, enthusiastic facilitators conduct original experiments and explain them to the public, who are invited to get involved directly.

The permanent exhibitions, which include animated models, experiments, illustrations and multimedia displays, are also used by facilitators to make their presentations. Experts in their field, facilitators use their talent and passion to stimulate the public’s interest in science. They explore scientific concepts such as Newtonian mechanics, particle physics, chemical phenomena and genetics in a language everyone can understand.
