Musee Des Arts Et Metiers, Paris Reviews
Fallen in love with this museum 9 years ago. And yesterday I visited it again. Many different cool machines and information how it works. Also you can touch and play with some of them! Very cool museum! Love it!!! 😍😍😍😍
It is a good and BIG exhibit. We were just disappointed that the English descriptions were few and far between. It got annoying very quickly, and we were really looking forward to this outing. If you decide to go, budget for the extra 5€ per person for an english audio guide. That should make it worth while, but pricing is not advertised.
Easily missed among all of the great museums of Paris, this place is a little gem, especially for those traveling with kids. The name is misleading, at least from an English speaking perspective -- it's really a science and industry museum. Lots of engaging interactive exhibits, no crowds, and good air conditioning (particularly welcome as we visited during a heat wave). Our kids (2 and 11) loved it, and we enjoyed the unique sight of a 12th century church converted to house a transportation display. All in all, not the most indispensable museum to visit in Paris, but one of the most child-friendly.
The transport section inside the old church with Foucault’s pendulum is stunning. The rest of the museum is a completely missed opportunity: where they could showcase the wonders of technology by bringing complex machines to life, they offer only full exhibit after dull exhibit. The explanations of how machines operate were far too technical to be understood by laymen, let alone children. The interactive elements were broken. Why not let us create an electric circuit, send a telegram, or build a cog circuit? Thoroughly disappointing.
What a wonderful museum. With an audio guide one can spend almost a day discovering all this museum has to offer. Make sure you don’t miss the last part of the museum which is located in an old Church building and contains aircraft and cars.
