About us


Welcome to the Exploradôme
the museum where it is forbidden not to touch!

At this science and multimedia centre located in Vitry-sur-Seine, only 10 minutes from Paris, you will discover scientific phenomena while having fun !
Here you can enjoy science and multimedia activities and discover sustainable development in an interactive way, suitable for both children and adults.

Permanent exhibition :
Come and try over 60 exciting hands-on experiments: create an artificial tornado! make a ball float in the air, discover a cloud maker machine, moving sand dunes and dozens of optical illusions that will amaze you!

Temporary exhibitions :
Every year, the temporary exhibition  invites to explore a  new theme, through interactive displays and workshops : Urban Biodiversity, Science in circus, The human body, animated movies...

Workshops :
The Exploradôme offers two kinds of exciting workshop classes: scientific and multimedia.
Attending the multimedia workshops let you explore the virtual world, while the scientific ones let you touch, build and discover various experiments.

The APIS network :
In 2013 we have launched a workshop called "the APIS" to build interactive exhibits, thanks to the governmental funding of the "Investissements d'Avenir pour la culture scientifique".
Involving researchers and teachers, the APIS develops interactive exhibits for a network of 20 science centers. This project allows to share resources and develop synergies for a better efficiency of these science centers.

Here are some examples of our exciting programme of activities:

Change your head: Learn how to touch up photos with Photoshop© and create an amazing self-portrait.
Suitable for children
8-12 years old.
The 5 senses:
Discover the fantastic world of human senses:hearing, sight, touch, taste and smell will be stimulated through practical experiments.
Suitable for children 4-6 years old.
A world of illusions:
Experience the phenomena of optical illusions with stunning images and create your own working kaleidoscope!
Suitable for children 5-10 years old.
