Tour of Mus'X - Ecole Polytechnique museum

We absolutely recommend coming to visit Mus’X, the Ecole Polytechnique museum with a collection of scientific and historic objects.  This museum exhibits the result of over 200 years of history and scientific discoveries.

You’ll be able to discover some fascinating scientific instruments such as the Magny microscope, a wonderful example of goldsmithery. A chance to take a closer look at the work of the school’s professors and researchers. You’ll also be able to find out more about the men and women who studied at this prestigious school.

Inside the museum, you will be impressed by the artworks created by former students and the scientific objects from the 18th century.
