Time Out says

This ultra-modern science museum pulls in five million visitors a year. Explora, the permanent show, occupies the upper two floors, whisking visitors through 30,000sq m (320,000sq ft) of space, life, matter and communication: scale models of satellites including the Ariane space shuttle, planes and robots, plus the chance to experience weightlessness, make for an exciting journey.

In the Espace Images, try the delayed camera and other optical illusions, draw 3D images on a computer or lend your voice to the Mona Lisa. The hothouse garden investigates developments in agriculture and bio-technology.

I think this museum is overrated. I came there with big expectations - only to be disappointed. The attractions weren't as awesome as their website show. I definitely won't come back there. And besides: I felt exposed. Too long on the subway, surrounded by (few) people who were staring at me (I was alone). Maybe it was so empty because it was winter, but I didn't feel safe. Do not recommend it.
