Families head off to Exploradôme, the interactive science and digital museum, to learn and experiment with your children, while having fun!

Based in Vitry-sur-Seine since 2009, Exploradôme is an interactive science and digital museum where visitors are invited to discover and experiment with a wide range of scientific concepts in a fun way.

In all, some fifty modules, known here as 'manips', are available for children and their parents to understand phenomena such as optical illusions, climate, energy and movement. Like works of art, these installations are waiting to be awakened and touched by your hands. With a touch, you can create a puff of smoke, blow up a tornado, fix your shadow on the wall or test the weightlessness of a balloon.

Once up to the second floor, you'll discover the temporary exhibition space, which always combines science and social facts. Throughout the year,Exploradôme also offers individual and group workshops on a wide range of subjects, including cooking, computing, mechanics and biology. Both fun and educational, Exploradôme has it all. Children learn and experiment in a hands-on, fun way!

The facility also organizes birthday parties for children and their friends. Depending on the age of the group, children set off on an adventure, either as adventurers on a treasure hunt or as scientific treasure hunters. They then complete a workshop such as "flying machine", "illusionist kit", "jet car"... From €170 to €245 depending on the formula, the package includes entertainment, cake, drinks and sweets. Parents can also bring their own brunch. More information on the website.
