France: Paris, Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie

I’ll be brutally honest.  Though Paris’ Cité des Sciences et de l’Industrie is by far the most visited tech museum in the world, it is not the best.  The science museum’s exhibits are not particularly clever, interesting, informative, well executed, or technically accurate.  I’d guess that if the museum were not located in ever-popular Paris, it would not record nearly as many visits.  What Cité des Sciences does have going for it is its building.  From its cavernous interior to the mirror-covered La Géode theater on the outside, it is a striking complex.
