Very well organised. Easy to find, Easy to park. A Space park and museum with emphasis on European and Russian space exploration. Very well laid out, Very much "Hands On" an excellent place for learning in an entertaining way. Make sure to have plenty of time. Its not the sort of place you run through in 1 hour.

We read all the reviews and went hesitantly to see what we thought Some people have complained there is not enough in English which is. It true. I didn't see anything that didn't have a good English translation with it. It's a very intelligently designed, interactive way to learn not just about space travel but all the modern benefits and...

We were disappointed by our visit, which costs a whopping 21 euros per person. It could be really interesting for both adults and children but the whole experience has been reduced to a very childish level. If you do decide to visit, the number 37 bus from town stops right outside the entrance. We went round and saw everything, which... More

We were looking for somewhere to spend a few hours after checking out of our gite and taking an early evening flight from Toulouse airport. The kids, now 13 and 11, had really enjoyed Kennedy Space Centre a couple of years ago and we realised we knew little of the European Space Agency programme. Visiting Cite de l'Espace seemed a...

Cite de l'Espace is located about 15 minutes drive from Toulouse center. We went there on a tuesday in September. Parking is free and very close. There were no lines at all for buying tickets. For space lovers it is an interactive museum. Translations are provided for non french speakers. The moon wAlk was the highlight of our day as... More

Took my 17 year old son here whilst the wife went shopping in Toulouse. We we're both quite disappointed. Ideal for school trips (for 10 year olds) but really...this is not a 'Space City'. Too many videos to watch, too many fake models, and not much more. Even the ''Rocket Burger' we had was like cardboard. Sorry not for us!!

Not designed for anyone who does not speak French, but interesting nevertheless. Easy to get to from metro/bus. Lots of activities but timetable not well planned and we missed some events. Lunch was either a proper dinner or snack, but the baguettes had almost all sold out by 12.15. Quite an expensive entrance fee, but it did include access to... More

You couldn't do this park justice without spending most of a day there, so when they have a hotel deal with free re-entry the following day it would be worth considering. Easy to buy your ticket on-line and then pick up your ticket at one of the machines in reception. Avoids the queues but remember then to get the programme... More

We arrived at about 10.30am and stayed until closing time. Fascinating to see the Mir Space Station and various rockets up close. Not too big. Easy to wonder round and there are various seats and shade and a cafe. Indoor exhibition very good and interactive in parts. English translations throughout in written displays. Some of the talks and quizzes were... More

This is a place for both space enthusiasts and kids, but be sure to have at least one full day if you want to explore it all. Pay a closer look at the program, since certain exhibitions are only open from certain hours. The price for the IMAX and Planetarium and all other attraction is included in the entry ticket....
