  • Very interesting museum to visit. The guides know the subject perfectly. Many experiments to be carried out to better understand the soul "product" (aluminum), its origin, its elaboration etc. See you again, with or without children!
  • Very complete space. Sometimes a little too much, but there is something for everyone. The essentials for those in a hurry, the fun for the youngest, the technical for the curious, ... Parking provided for the aluminum space. Downside: no information on the health risks associated with aluminum, but one of the patrons of this space remains EDF.
