We'd a good half day at this location. They really have alot of exhibits. Its a pity that there are not more 'attractions' for kids and that the 2 they have are not better manned - eg a 70 min line to visit the moon walk which takes approx 60 seconds.. But it was fascinating to see the largest meteor... More

First thing to know when you purchase the tickets online: you need to print them. But you are not informed about it once you got your confirmation, unleess you've read terms and conditions while booking (but who really does ?:6 pages just for the entry ticket). A bit frustrating in todays paperless technology. Seems you can print them in one... More

Very good accessibility for disabled people/people in wheelchairs. Lots of interactive things to keep us interested. Also very educational and interesting to know. Outdoor exhibits were excellent, the films and planetarium provided good translations to English and the indoor museum was also very good. We stayed a whole day there and did not get bored!

The overall experience was not as great as I had expected. Our daughted loved walking on the moon. The MIR space station was good.

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.

Thank Alan .
