Stepping into a Science Fiction story


If you've ever visited the Musee de Arts et Metiers in Paris it's likely that you stepped off of the Metro into this station.  The station name is Arts et Metiers and it was redesigned in 1994 to celebrate the bicentenary of the museum.  It was designed by Belgian artist Francois Schuiten in a style called "steampunk".  It looks like something Jules Verne might have dreamed up.  I was so taken by the station that I waited for the crowds to clear so that I could get a good photo of it.

You know much more than I. I used to go on foot from Chatelet... Nice.
