On the island of Puteaux, in the heart of the Parc Lebaudy, you'll find Naturoscope, a place dedicated to the environment that aims to raise awareness among young and old through educational exhibitions and events.

All year round, Naturoscope welcomes schoolchildren and the general public for guided tours on bees, marine biodiversity, the environment...


What fascinates visitors most of all are Naturoscope's huge aquariums, with 38,000 liters of water (in total) housing freshwater, saltwater, Seine and tropical fish in a special aquarium! To discover the world of bees, Naturoscope also has 17 apiaries, which you can visit on guided tours with a beekeeper. Every year, honey is even produced in the Naturoscope apiaries, before being sold at the Puteaux Point Info! Finally, if you've got a green thumb or would like an introduction to fishing, Naturoscope offers gardening and fishing lessons every Wednesday.

For even more thrills, Naturoscope also offers a 4DX experience, with a documentary film showing the journey of a migratory fish, a salmon in this case, on its long migration to the ocean. Whether you've come to discover its large aquariums, its educational exhibits or to try your hand at 4DX, Naturoscope is open on Wednesdays and weekends during school terms, and from Tuesday to Saturday during school vacations (zone C only). Detailed opening times are available on the Naturoscope website, so don't hesitate to consult them before your visit! Admission is free and open to all, but reservations are required for groups.

To get there, take Transilien line L (Puteaux stop) or metro line 1 (Esplanade de la Défense stop), followed by a bus (175, direction Porte de Saint-Cloud, get off at Pont de Puteaux).
