Brain, the neurological exhibition

Date From to
Cité des sciences et de l'industrie GB

Three different spaces are there to inform you on what happens in your head. How is the inside of your skull organized? How does a human brain work? This great exhibition of the Cité des Sciences et de l'Industrie that lays on 800 m² can be done in 4 different languages: French, English, Italian and Spanish.

The permanent exhibition in Paris La Villette

Our brain is always working: it learns, reasons, judges, decides. It is a great machine you will be able to discover in three parts:

  • What do we have in our head? - In this part of the exhibition you will discover the brain in its most microscopic point of view. You will see how are structured your neurons and how information is communicated in this inside world thanks to several videos and quizz.
  • A non-stop brain: always active - Even when you are sleeping, your brain is still working: it learns, watches, decides and conscientizes! You will be able to test yourself and your family and friends thanks to games inspired by lab experiences.
  • The social brain - All your life, your brain manages your relations with others and evolves with them. A peculiar filmed conference will answer all your questions such as: Why do we stay with fellows?
