Lots of things to see and to do, not only for children! The first part, on early communication systems, is very interesting in itself - we had never seen the laying of deep-sea cables explained, for example. But maybe you'd better save your time for...More

Great fun, very clean and today. The illusions area was the highlight for us and a trip inside the Radome (we unfortunately went on a day when there was not an english translation but there are days when the production is in English.). The 3D...More

You would expect this kind of museum rather in a big city than in this remote part of northern France. We went there with high expectations and were pleased with the variety of items and things to see and do, also for kids. The Radome...More
