When a low-intensity nuclear test is detected in a rogue country, there's only one special agent with the required espionage skills, personal theme music, and cheesy catchphrase for the job – you!

In this unique new immersive exhibition at the Cité des sciences et de l'industrie, you'll assume the role of an intelligence agent whose job it is to gather information about a possible nuclear detonation. You'll use recorded interviews with real French intelligence servicemen and women, and present your findings to the head of state.

By blending fictional scenarios with real-life intelligence procedures, this exhibition affords an extraordinary window into the often murky world of counter-intelligence. It's educational, fun, and running for a limited time only.

It was a fascinating place with a lot of hands-on exhibits.

it was really quiet when we went, aside from the sports and video games sections there wasn’t much to do - most of the interactive stuff was pressing a button to start a video. cafes and shops inside were pricey for the experience. probably would have had a higher rating if we were able to get into the planetarium
