On arriving here we thought it was quite small but it is actually not possible to see and do everything in one day. Arrive early as there is a queue for tickets or book them on-line before you go. The park was open only from 10 to 18:00 and there is quite a lot to do in that time. You... More

Amazing child friendly place more than enough to keep our 4 yrs old kid entertained. Plenty of inside and outside activities. Educational and fun. Spent most of the day (11-3) here travelling from Carcassonne. Def worth the effort (even if the train ticket turned out incredibly expensive). Little guy got to fire off a rocket and practice some moon walking.... More

The site offers a lot of information on space and its exploration, the use of satellite, weather monitoring, international coopreration in the construction of rockets, etc. Suitable for families with children of school age. Hosts replicas of space vessels. Interactive elements were partly not functioning properly, but those which worked were enjoyable. The site closes very early: at 17h already... More

The problem with this 'attraction' for want of a better word, is that it is run by the local City hall and not by a private entrepreneur. The result is a very serious - overly serious - centre that explains France's efforts at space exploration with a lot of background detail on what space is, where it is and why... More

Are you a fan of space? Well, this is the place for you. This really brought back the wondering child in us. Unique in Europe, the Cité de l’espace theme park has completely renovated its various interactive exhibition and activity areas in 2012. From 2014 until mid-2015, enjoy the temporary exhibition “Extremes explorations” (dedicated to Mars / Curiostity robot &... More

The space center has replicas of the Ariane space missile, the former Russian space lab MIR as well as other artificats that are currently employed on Mars etc. The center is mainly designed for children because of the many animations and interactive games. It lacks of technical details for adults and if you do not know the story of MIR,... More

Visited the Cité de l'Espace with our 2 grand-children for a day out last june. Expected more from our visit, so a little disappointed. The most interesting while very relaxing part was the show in the cine room. Children happy, but ready to leave after a couple of hours.

My kids (ages 7 and 5) have been interested in space for a couple of years. We visited Cape Canaveral about 18 months ago and Cite de l'espace is a great compliment to that experience. While Cite de l'espace is much smaller than Cape Canaveral we came away feeling that it was more educational for all family members. There are... More

This is really a great outing for children and adults ! You can spend the whole day there and never get bored ! Try to go there when the holidays are over so that you won't wait too long for the attractions. There are so many things to see and experience...The kid's favourite is the "moonwalk" attraction which requieres patience... More
