Observatory of the French Riviera

City of Nice localisation du projet Nice

The aim of the project was to renovate the basement of the Grand Equatorial in order to discover the development of the foundations of the building known as the “Grand Equatorial”, designed by Charles Garnier. The dome was designed by Gustave Eiffel. The Interpretation Center of the Observatory takes place in this part of the building, offering an immersive and interactive journey to the discovery of the instruments of observation of space and stars, including scientists who made the reputation of the site and those who still participate today. The whole permanent exhibition offers a first approach of complex themes related to the observation of stars, and proposes a deepening for the most passionate ones.
