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

This is a great place if you or your child have a keen interest in space - if you are only vaguely interested you might be better off dropping the space enthusiast's off and going shopping in Toulousse. There is loads of reading information & interactive activities but none that particularly enthrall end my 7 year daughter, but my 9... More

I went with my 16 year old son who is interested in all things scientific and we both loved our visit here. The air condiitoned Imax cinema with two presentations - one on near miss collisions with earth and the other on the far galaxy was a good thing to do when the temperature got hot outside. We easily took... More

Going on previous reviews we decided to eat there. Bad idea. Main restaurant closed. Snack bar closed. Other eating place in the planetarium, had tables laid for kids school party, only sold cold drinks (€3 each) and an almond muffin. English translation machines are old but free. Other than that, have to give it 4/5 for displays and attractions and... More

Extraordinaire place! There are so many things to do there, enough to entertain you for a full day. Many interactive things, very well presented, for adults and for kids, you don't even need to have astronomy as a hobby to get captivated. It is also well suited for non French speakers. Many of the organized activities are in the afternoon,... More

Not a bad place to visit, but I went as a business group so we had the place to ourselves. The stellarium was ok but the focus of the projection was not very sharp. Some interesting displays and rocket parts to seee and touch. The full size Ariane5 is impressive, I didn't get the chance to see the Mir space... More

We went in February. Weather was cold but clear sky. Easy to find carpark (for those who drive). The place is separated by indoor and outdoor. We went mostly outdoor where the spaceship is. There is also a children playground nearby which is really good for the children. After that, we have lunch at a restaurant (can't remember the name)... More

This is a must see if you have children who are into science - or maybe adults also . We visited with our two grandchildren 13 and 6 and they both had a thoroughly fun and yet educational time .The Imax and the planetarium are just amazing and the Mir space station , the russian spaceship and the terradome quiz...
