The Palais de la Découverte is a science museum located in the Grand Palais, in the 8th arrondissement on Avenue Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Palace of Discovery, inaugurated during the 1937 Exposition Universelle and thus the world’s first interactive museum, is a fascinating place to take kids thanks to its hands-on exhibits on astronomy, biology, medicine, chemistry, mathematics, computer science, physics and earth sciences. The museum also features a Zeiss planetarium with a 15 meter dome, as well as a circular ‘pi’ room, inscribed with 707 digits of the number π. It is open daily except Monday.
