La Cité des sciences et de l’industrie (CSI) is one of the largest science centres in Europe. Opened in March 1986 with a surface of more than 100.000 m2, the Cité is today the fifth most visited museum in France, attracting around three million visitors each year.


CSI incorporates a wide range of permanent and temporary exhibitions, year-round events, a digital resource centre, a scientific and  professional library dedicated to the history of sciences, a scientific updated news service, a room for the blind and visually impaired, several auditoriums dedicated to films and lecture programmes, as well as pedagogical activities for schools and entertainment. La Cité des sciences works in close collaboration with networks of museums and science centres to facilitate access to the latest developments in science and technology to a large audience. CSI is expected to merge with another leading science museum in Paris, Palais de la Découverte, in order to create a new major national institution for scientific culture.
