Le Vaisseau

The Vaisseau is a formidable mediation tool built and managed by the European Collectivity of Alsace since 2005. Welcoming around 170,000 visitors each year, the Vaisseau's mission is to help people discover science in a different way and to disseminate scientific and technical culture to a variety of audiences.

Through the themes addressed, the Vaisseau invites visitors to take part in the debate to better understand how the world evolves. But above all, the Vaisseau is a convivial moment where you can enjoy discovering the world through manipulation, experimentation and collaboration.
