Wednesday we went farther afield, taking the metro to Porte de la Villette to the Cite des Sciences et de L’Industrie. There was a very interesting exhibit on art robots, and the rest of the museum was very much like the science centres we have been to, and the exhibits were very well done. It was hard to read all of the French descriptions for Laura, so I eventually gave up.
Porte de la Villette looked like a big park where a summer exhibition is held. Part of the reason for heading up here was to see the Musee de la Musique, on elf the “finest collections of instruments from the 17th century to modern day. We were all pretty enthralled and stayed until they closed the museum at 6pm. The free audio guides were excellent.
Restaurants in Paris don’t open for dinner until 7 pm, so we took the metro back to our area. The metro we extremely busy (rush hour), and Laura didn’t have much fun. Since we were all pretty exhausted we went to the Hamburgery that we had spotted earlier, and had very good burgers. We topped the evening off with pastries from Kayser (macaron, chocolate eclair, raspberry pistachio tart, and pecan chocolate square).
