A visit to this museum was well worth it. The individual topics were presented very clearly. The staff there were very friendly and helpful. With all the offers, you almost don't know where to start and where to go. It is worth defining a route before the tour. The planetarium in particular should be looked at more closely, as different programs are shown during the day. Depending on it can have long queues. There is also something for the little ones. The only downside is that not all exhibitions are explained in languages other than French. If someone does not speak French, enjoyment is limited. The app you can download doesn't really help either. Still, it was an interesting trip. Is recommended.

Very good not enough time, we will have to come back to continue the spaces not finished or seen, Attention parking very expensive when we stay there the day, prefer outdoor parking, oneppark as an example because the street parking lots ruin us otherwise Sunday and public holidays free parking around La Villette too bad we didn't know before, otherwise lack of interior information and no paper plan always forced to look at the laptop, when we are there to open up another mental space, too bad and all not everyone has a laptop which is fine otherwise it's very good to do and very interesting and one more thing be careful to book the submarine before because we couldn't do it the reservations were made two days before it it was complete pity

Unfortunately everything only in English, Spanish and French! As a result, we could not try some things or only partially. The visit to the submarine was included, but it didn't help us much because you need an additional voucher. Unfortunately, they were all sold out that day. The planetarium was also very good, but again everything in French! It's worth a trip!
