Well worth a visit,plenty to see and do, from exhibitions, interactive activities and film shows. The IMAX cinema is a must, all screened in 3D, make sure you get your head set as the commentary is in French, my advice is to get there 15 minutes before the start as it is the most popular attraction. There are plenty of... More

There was a long queue for some of activities so we could not join. Food at the restaurant was disappointing though this was an excellent place for a day visit.

The reason I have not given it a 4 stars is because of the entry fee of 24 euros . It is a good day out with the kids but ensure you have enough time to spend there given the entry fees. I would suggest more explanations in English as a number of our fellow travellers were either English or... More

Good place to visit with children. It is quite interesting but people taking care of the explanations only did it in french in most cases. 3D imax (Hubble film) strongly recommended. Park is clean and the restaurant is correct. You can enter food and drinks into the park if you want.

Good day out, especially for children. Lots of interactive stuff/screens in main building and various space vehicles/objects outside. If you don't speak French you can get English & Spanish (may be others) translation headsets for Planetarium and Imax, though note that only the first half of Planetarium show gets translated. Imax film was the best thing there - really very... More

The interior part of the museum caters very well for tourists with explanations of exhibits in French and English, with interactive demonstrations as well. It is very well presented. The IMAX cinema, included in the price, also has headphones for you to listen to the audio in your language. The fact this is also in 3-D, we watched a film... More

The place is nice, the exposition is well organized and there are a lot of things to see/do. On the other end, the place totally lacks of showmanship and is way too focus on France (like all the french exhibits ). Considering the 24 euros per adult admission fee, i would say that the return value you get is no... More

For those with an adventurous heart and wish to go where no man has gone before this museum tells the story form the first rockets to life aboard the International space station. It also explores space and the planets as we know them and... More

To be honest nearly didn't visit this attraction and this the third time we have been in the area, we had been swayed by some negative reviews....and how we would have missed out! This is a terrific educational family day out, for those definitely that have an interest in space and technology. Most exhibits have an English translation which was... More

La Cite de l'Espace is a theme park on astronomy covering all element of the space conquest from the first rocket to have left earth to modern usage of weather satellite to predict weather changes ... All in all the exhibit within the main pavilion is kind of cool and pretty modern, with fun games for teenagers, but the outside... More
