From 1 to 24 September inclusive, the Pass will be closing its doors so it can start work on preparing for the start of the 2021 academic year. And what a start it will be! The next time you come to the Pass, the Pass will won’t be here any more! A new name, a new identity, new experiences... get the date in your diary: 25/09/2021, time for a breath of fresh air at our science centre!

    We have some great news to share: in September, the Pass will be changing its name

    We have been talking about it for over a year, and it won’t be long now. On 25 September 2021, the Pass, a scientific and social adventure park, will officially change its name!

    After over 21 years spent with our visitors, partners and sponsors, and after a number of postponements due to the health crisis, our teams quite naturally needed to celebrate this major event with our visitors over the course of a long festive weekend on 25, 26 and 27 September! And the icing on the cake: entry will be free for children up to the age of 18 for the event!

    As a reminder, schools and local authorities are all closed on 27/09 because of the French Community Holiday, so this is a great opportunity to spend the day with your family or for grandparents to spend some time with their grandchildren here.

    There are also some new features in the museum area!

    At the end of September, you will also be able to discover some new features as soon as you enter the Passerelle: there’s a new shop, the ticket office and information point have been reorganised and optimised, there’s a new augmented reality photo experience near the “Chemistry of Emotions” installation...

    The Pass will also be hosting the temporary exhibition “Plastic Oceans” by Expéditions Med, with the support of Materia Nova.

    FESTIVE EVENT on 25-26 and 27/9

    From 25 to 27/9, come and (re)discover the unmissable features that have made the Pass such a success and try out some new activities, organised especially for the occasion: a death ride, a drone race, a themed photobooth, VR, light painting...

    3 days of festivities with a tailor-made programme to delight young and old alike.
