Loved by families and curious people, the Palais de la Découverte couldn’t completely close in August 2020 and for four years to renovate the Grand Palais. So, after having received the green flag from the Paris Council, the museum will settle in the Parc André-Citroën with a temporary structure covering about 800sqm.
Inside this temporary museum made of wood, the Palais de la Découverte will propose the permanent exhibition we know, in reduced version, workshops and conferences as well as a 49-seat planetarium!
The zones of the temporary Palais de la Découverte are:
We can already guess that the Palais de la Découverte of the Parc André-Citroën won’t be able to welcome the same number of visitors. It has already been planned that the temporary museum will be reserved for schools and groups in the week and open by registration to the general public in the weekends and during school breaks.
A good solution to keep on studying the main scientific phenomenon while the beautiful 1900 monument is getting a makeover to reopen in 2024.
