The Water Trail: From River to River

The Water Trail: From River to River

 Children have fun discovering the exhibition through Professor Hydraulix’s Rally (8 years and up) or through the Rallye All’eau photo! (ages 5 to 7). The exhibition’s pleasant and fascinating decor, complete with the famous bubble columns, even encourages toddlers to want to stay longer than their parents!

You can view many pieces of the C.I.EAU permanent collection online, including some in our permanent exhibit! To do so, go to the page Collection.
