The ‘Espace des sciences’ centre, which may be translated as the “Science Centre”, is an organization dedicated to the promotion and the diffusion of scientific, technical and industrial culture to a wide audience.
The ambition of the Espace des sciences is to share with the largest amount of people, the pleasure of learning about scientific knowledge. Its goal is to give rise to scientific vocations as its audience is wide and particularly young. A direct connection between scientists and people at large is promoted. To make science accessible, visitors are invited to experiment and manipulate. The Espace des sciences owns 3 exhibition rooms (each of 300 m²), a 95-seater planetarium and has at its disposal a 450-seater lecture hall. The Espace des sciences imagines, creates and presents its own exhibitions (touring or not), its own astronomy sessions, its own books, magazine and website.
