The Pass – a novel experience that shakes up your senses and stimulates your mind!
A feast of games and adventures awaits you at this extraordinary venue featuring specialist interest areas, exciting activities and fun challenges. Awe-inspiring discoveries guaranteed!

There's no lazing around at the Pass! You'll be able to compare your sporting prowess to that of the finest athletes, try your hand at the art of molecular cuisine, eradicate an epidemic and learn how to "speak robot". Whether you’re exploring the exhibitions or enjoying a workshop, you'll learn how chemistry, digital sciences, sport and nature keep the world in motion!

The "Pass’âge of discoverers" (from 3 years) invites tiny tots to discover science through experiments and poetry. Children aged 6-12 years will love the "Pass’âge des Aventuriers" and its indoor acrobatic course to keep them on their toes!

Explore the adventure garden too: a 69-acre nature reserve with a coal face to climb and playground for extra fun and games!

The Pass – a whole world of experiences!
