Exhibition: Grains de génie, de la plage au labo

Through this exhibition entitled “Grains de genie, de la plage au labo” (“Speck of genius, from the beach to the lab”), the Palais de la Découverte proposes twenty interactive physics experiences that test the behaviour of the granular material. Grains of sand are put under the spotlights – as well as earth and clay – either wet or dry. Although they may seem quite ordinary, these tiny grains contain some highly complex physics notions that are here explained to visitors in an instructive six-section exhibition.

“Grains de génie, de la plage au labo” exhibition, from December 2nd 2014 to May 3rd 2015.
Open Tuesday-Saturday from 9:30am to 6pm, on Sunday and bank holidays from 10am to 7pm.
Closed on Monday, May 1st and July 14th 2015.
Full rate: €9 / Reduced rate (under-25s and over-65s): €7 / Free for children aged under 6.
