…but what do you have in your head?

Welcome to an outfit post from the largest science museum in Europe! We went to Paris solely for one piece at this museum. Quite the pilgrimage! Reaching that article was one of the most incredible moments of my life – I started a more specific post but couldn’t articulate the experience adequately, so for the first time ever have been unable to finish a post! This tells you how momentous it was as I am very rarely lost for words.

All of the European museums I have encountered include interactive exhibits which blend virtual reality, puzzles and film alongside traditional displays. It makes for a nice change as many of our UK exhibitions seem to be more object-driven. Highlights included Jeux de Lumiere, a hall of light, vision and optical illusions; the planetarium; the submarine; L’homme et les genes, an exhibition on humans and genetics and my personal favourite C3RV34U, a comprehensive “neuroplay” exhibition about the brain (my top science interest).

Most beautiful of all was the light room. It was so peaceful dancing around in the soft pools of pastel rainbows on the floor, lights gently changing colour. Museums give me such a safe, happy feeling; surrounded by knowledge, learning and research, inspired to think, analyse, and create.

    Wow, it sounds amazing, I didn’t visit that museum, and like you, I love museums – so my next trip to Paris, I want to go there – thank you so much for sharing it!! I had that feeling when I went to the Tower of London, it was difficult to describe – or if I did, people would think I went mad. It was transcendental. I think this room with lights must be amazing, I love interaction! Looking forward to seeing more of your trip!

    It sounds like you had a wonderful time and that it was more than worth the trip! I’ve never been to Paris, which is quite silly considering how close it is! xo
