i visited the cite de l'espace when it opened and was surprised to see that some of the exhibits haven't been updated (the food and equipment in the Columbus are so old they have turned bad and the bag contents are spilled...) very educational but why only in French in the garden? My 7 year old son enjoyed it but... More

Genuinely interesting day out with something for everyone, Lots of hands on activities and nearly everything has an English translation available. Both my kids (ages 16 and 12) found enough to keep them occupied for 5 hours. We also ate in the brasserie which was very good. Very friendly and helpful staff and a really enjoyable day out had by... More

We (2 adults, 2 children 14,11) arrived at ten o'clock in the morning. There's plenty of free parking available. While waiting in line to buy your tickets somebody is handing out a map and explaining the activities. I would say that 90% of information is available in English. A few things outside and part of the presentation in the planetarium... More

It was a great place to go before getting to the airport for our return trip home and also... More

we arrived at the opening at 10h and it was calm. We could go to see the films in 3D IMAX and see the planetarium (great experience). They are a lot of activities for the kids (games, labyrinth, rocket games, experiences, ...) Inside and outside, for everybody. You can visit the old MIR station and look at the planets in... More

I went to 'Space City' with pretty low expectations. We went by car so it was very easy to get to and find. Once there you can plan out what you want to over the next hours as some thimgs only happen once or maybe twice a day such as certain shows in the planetarium. I would siggest going at... More

During my first visit to Toulouse, I went with my boyfriend to Cité de l'Espace. It's an amazing place with an open air and a lot of activities. The queueing system is good, we didn't wait no long. Activities are interactive and ludic !!

We visited Cite de L'Espace to celebrate our little guy turning four and it was awesome! We arrived around 11:30 and stayed till closing time at 5pm and we should have gotten there even earlier as we kind of ran out of time. We packed a lunch as we had heard mixed reviews about the restaurant on site and we... More
