This new space of 500m², adapted from the Cité des enfants (Paris La Villette), is the result of a rich cooperation between Hong Kong Science Museum and Universcience. It is closely followed since the first exhibition presented in this museum was "Electricité" in 1999; then in 2004 the exhibition "Le Cheveu se décode" was presented and the Palais de la Découverte hosted an exhibition produced by the Hong Kong Science Museum: Flowers in the Mirror.

The city of Paris boasts two prestigious centres promoting science and technology, the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie and the Palais de la Découverte. From January 1st, 2010, they have joined forces to create a new institution: Universcience placed under the joint responsibility of the Ministry for Higher Education, Research and Innovation and the Ministry for Culture. With almost 3.5 million visitors each year (3 million at the Cité des sciences et de l’industrie and 550 000 at the Palais de la découverte), Universcience is the fourth most popular cultural establishment in Paris after the Louvre, Versailles and the Georges-Pompidou Centre.
