A must see for all those who are in love with subjects related to aviation and space... you will have the chance to learn a lot about space missions and you will get the chance to visit a MIR station from the inside...

I have taken various children to the cite de l espace, at various times and I have always wanted to go there just for myself, because there is much more to see than just the obvious attractions. It does need time and concentration though.The museum is fascinating and the weather studio has made me realise that I am a born... More

Didn't know that this was in the city (on the outskirts), trip by bus, change of bus required from the centre of Toulouse. A well built park/attraction perfect for kids and adults. 2/3 hours needed to see it - if the weather is good, nice outdoor sections too!

It is an interesting place to visit especially if you have kids. The price is a little expensive but it is worth to pay that amount because of the activities proposed. You will need at least 7 to 8 hours to really enjoy your time. Check the program so you will not miss the activities and also the 3D animations/films.

Interesting displays. The planetarium is good. The imax is as you would expect. There needs to be more interactive displays and technology for kids. For such a large facility, there is not a great deal to hold the attention for more than an hour or two, except for the planetarium and imax. When you include those, you will fill in... More

Went to Cite de l'Espace thinking it would be a good way to spend a couple of hours and ended up spending the whole day. The educational parts are fun and interactive and the history is well done as well. In addition to the exhibits there is a planetarium show and an IMAX show and a nice restaurant as well.... More

The museum and space garden is great to see and have a short visit. You can observe and enter a few of the spacecrafts and learn about the history of space exploring. There is a planetarium closeby as well.

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 !
