There's much info about this place on the web, but a personal exploration is needed to grasp and appreciate it. Allow extra time to visit the adjacent music museum with its fabulous exhibits. Go in daylight to get a full grasp of the building's skin...More

The material and design of the walls is different from everything that I have seen in Paris. I didn't watch any presentation, but I think the visit is worthy for adults and children.

Still some finishing work to be done but a beautiful first look. Sure, the elevators were wonky. People couldnt find the stairs. Bathrooms ill equipped, but the actual concert hall is gorgeous!

We were very lucky to spend an unforgettable evening here to experience Yo Yo Ma and Kathryn Stott in concert. The auditorium is breathtaking and the acoustics sublime. Beautiful once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Phil de Paris!

La Villette
This futuristic landscape has come to define the
northeast of Paris. The Saint-Denis canal is framed
with luscious lawns and metallic buildings over a
wide-open space. Home to Europe's largest science

explorations; there are three concert spaces, plus
cinemas and bars, and even open-air cinema in the
summer. The surrounding homes are a sharp contrast to
