In the middle of Paris, bring your family to see the living conditions aboard a nuclear submarine.

The Argonaute is a submarine museum, berthed in the Parc de la Villette since 1989. Its audio-guided tour offers a glimpse into the daily life of a 40-man team. On the inside, decorations and photographs from the time help visitors to imagine themselves as submariners.

When you exit the submarine, you can experience even more with an exhibition explaining the key ideas behind underwater navigation.

In this visit, the secret world of the submariners will be revealed! In particular, you will learn about the practice of "hot racking", discover the technical complexity of such a construction and understand why the Argonaute was such a unique way to collect information and run special operations

The Argonaute submarine is open but  its exhibition is closed for refurbishing. The reopening of the exhibition is planned at the end of October, 2018.
