Once again, the Palais de la Découverte hosts the Museums Night on Saturday May 18, 2019. Science fans can even meet searchers.

On the occasion of Museums Night 2019 the Palais de la Découverte opens its doors by night on Saturday May 18, 2019. As usual, the major place for research and scientific experiment offers to meet searchers and PhD students all night long.

From 8 p.m., you can visit for free the Palais de la Découverte and its 7 spaces devoted to sciences - astronomy, chemistry, maths, physics, biology, geoscience and computer science.

On the menu of Museums Night 2019 at the Palais de la Découverte:

  • Meetings with searchers, at 8 p.m., 10 p.m. and 11 p.m.
    Shaped as a convivial moment of talking with objects, games and experiments, three young searchers in different fields will show you their daily life and the research world.

  • My thesis in 10 minutes, at 8 p.m., 9 p.m. and 11 p.m.
    In turn, three young searchers from different fields will present their research topics in 10 minutes top, before taking the time to answer your questions. After their presentations, they will be available for 20 minutes of talks.

  • Experiments in the Planétarium
    Comfortably seated under a 15-m cupola where a planetarium reproduces a starry night of an exceptional quality, we can gaze at galactic or extragalactic objects visible to the naked eye.

Note that the Cité des Sciences also takes part in Museums Night with a program about trains!
