Le Vaisseau - Review

This particular kind of attraction has been gaining a lot of popularity since the millennium – where kids can get hands on with science and technology. The name of the place itself, which can be translated as The Ship, is symbolic of the child’s journey through science and technology. The place really does try and reach out to as many children as possible – it’s exhibits are presented in English, French, German and even Braille.

The permanent exhibitions are as follows:

  • Being Humaninsight into the human body and its disabilities.
  • Animals: Anderstanding the role of animals in our biosphere and how they’re distinct from humans.
  • I Build: As Bob the Builder, plan your way through a civil project!
  • Water: Understanding it’s importance, scarcity and future applications.
  • Image and Sound: A journey into formation of the world around them.
  • The Garden: A mini- zoo and botanic garden.

The Boutique in the entrance hall, with it’s many educational books, is an attraction unto itself; there’s a cafeteria with a decent refreshment menu; the Ateliers is excellent for hosting private workshops and activities; and the Room of 1000 Crumbs is an school-trip picnicking favorite!

  • Great day out for kids. The museum has several sections inside and out, including a construction zone, an area dedicated to the human body, an ant colony, bee hives and wild flowers. All signage is in three languages: French, German and English. Everything is interactive and quite educational. All in all, the kids have great fun with the exhibits. Only drawback is the café. The coffee isn't great and the food we bought wasn't particularly good either, but at least it wasn't too expensive!

  • Very good though not so big as I would wish. There's a cafeteria inside. Overall very good

  • Amazing science museum for kids - we stayed 5 hours there and it was not enough. My kids especially enjoyed the building site where you can use a crane, little wagons and railroad crossing... It was beautiful to see how kids cooperate.

  • Hands-on science for children (up to around 12) in a modern building with cafeteria and small 3D cinema.

  • Nice museum for kids, and has things for both younger and older kids. I especially liked the human body area.
