Forum Départemental des Sciences - Centre François Mitterrand

Centre for cultural interpretation (VILLENEUVE-D'ASCQ)


The modern Forum building attracts a large public, especially children and teenagers, who come in to wonder at science and technology. There are 4,000 m2 of areas devoted to exhibitions, conferences and workshops on all manner of subjects. Space, time, astronomy, the human body and even forensic science are just some of the themes that have so far been addressed in the Forum's exhibitions. Imaginative new elements are added each year to the existing ensemble. You can prolong your visit with a Planetarium session, or stroll around the multimedia resource centre and browse through its many works and documents.
