Came here with my parents, my husband, my 6 year old and twin 11 month olds. It was lunchtime when we arrived so we went to the restaurant to eat first. The staff were very accommodating, moving the tables around to make space for us and our double buggy. The manager was really friendly and really nice, he definitely made... More

Loads of rockets spaced around the park to see. Descriptions in both French and English. Inside the main centre is 3 floors of interactive displays. A little way out of the city centre but really good transport connnections with bus stop right outside. Well worth a visit

Everything about space travel is here. History of how it started, rockets, fuels, what they eat, wear and some good hands on interactive displays. There was even a prototype of the Mir station and you get to try moon walking.

Bring your kids there. It's an amazing place to understand how space industry works. A lot of fun for kids especially and things are well maintained. Only set back is the lack of information at each points.

My wife and me went to this Space City in Toulouse a couple of days ago as part of a trip we were making in Toulouse. No information was given to us regarding lunch timetables as we bought our tickets at 11:00 am, only the times of the attractions and movies shown. We took the 3D IMAX movie at 11:15... More

We did the tour in English with a French astronomer. It was absolutely fantastic! He was very engaging and there were so many cool exhibits and things to do.

I visited Cité de l'Espace with my 3 year old daughter and it was very enjoyable for her, even though the main public would be of older children. The exhibitions are amazing and the information provided very interesting. We also had lunch at the cafeteria and it was very good and not very expensive. This is a must see in... More

Child at heart here, loved all-things space as a kid and this place took me right back to that headspace. The planetarium is incredible, the exhibitions solid (especially learning while you quiz-off against mates) and the moon walk was incredibly novel. €22 Euros and no extra charges for the IMAX or anything - you'd never get that in the UK!
