I was not expecting a great day as my interest in this was limited, but I agreed to take my 16 year old son. I have to say that it completely captivated me and I have found a whole new interest that I can share with my son. Be sure to view the IMAX film which was amazing and visit... More

conveniently accessible by bus L16 if you don't drive, the Space City if full of satellites, rockets, launchers, children activities, movies etc... while it is not as huge as the Nasa Cape Canaveral Center it is worth a 2-3 hours visit...

Last year my son was 4, now at 5 he wanted to go back and the parc had evolved and had even more to offer e.g a great mars science class. Great place and a must for little science enthusiasts !

I have to say I was sceptical that this would be a good day, but we stayed all day and had a great time. Some interesting exhibits, some good things to do/interact with and a good day out. Although there are at least two places to eat, I would suggest taking lunch as they are not cheap.

This was on our list of places to visit this year but at about €100 for our family of 5 it was a bit rich. We then noticed it was open until 23.00hrs over the summer hols and is HALF PRICE after 7pm ☺. We went and really enjoyed it. Make sure you get the headphones for the IMAX. All... More

Cite de l'espace has it all to be a top attraction. However, the queueing procedure made people behave badly. Getting in front of eachother was common practice. The service at the restaurant at the Imax theater was poor. The food was getting cold, the guys behind the counter were unfriendly and the logistics was even worse.

The mockups of the Mir space station and the Soyuz capsule are good fun. I certainly had no idea how tiny the Soyuz was. Everything else is a bit mundane, so the whole experience, as a package, is, to my mind, well overpriced.

I visited here with my nephew and his friend aged 12 & 11. The exhibits in the main entrance area are all interactive and presented in 3 languages which is good as none of us speak French. Unfortunately some of the other exhibits are only in French which did detract from our enjoyment. The IMAX and planetarium provide translation sets... More

I took my 5yr old son to Space City for a day trip & he absolutely loved it, there are lots of things for little people to touch & explore, I normally spend the day saying 'don't touch, don't touch', however I was pleasantly suprised at Space City as everything is so interactive. My little boy climbed inside the space... More
