I was there with my kids on Jan. 1st, knowing that most of all other attractions in Toulouse would be closed. Very good that the Cite de l'Espace was open. It was very cold outside, so we mainly enjoyed the indoor exhibitions, the Planetarium and the IMAX theatre (great that they are both included in the main ticket) The only... More

This truly is an amazing attraction. There is so much to see, do and learn. From satellites, conservation, space travel, weather forecasting to the experience of walking on the moon! There are so many videos and interactive displays it is simply perfect for all ages. Really, a day is simply not enough to see everything and we only scratched the... More

We prepared this trip for our kids as surprise and it worked. It was much more than we expected. They are offering all the experiments and informations about spaceship and outer space life. You won't regret ever your visit if you do with with your kids. It takes whole day to look around. And it includes indoor and outdoor activities... More

Information overload so you will need to spend at least 4 hours here. There is LOTS to see and read. Films are great, as well as static exhibits with lots for children and adults alike to do. Restaurant food was good and ok value.

My husband and I visited the space city and I felt sorry our daughter was not with us. We had a really nice guide and the museum is very interesting! Definitely come!

3 of us had a great day here. The tube then bus was easy and added to the excitement for our 5 yr old. Very impressive space stuff on display, especially the rocket and the Mir space station. Inside section also very good, 3 floors of hands-on activities and info. Bit of a queue for the moonwalk, but he loved... More

This is a "must" day out for the family. Educationally brilliant by allowing all young at heart to experience the life of an astronaut and the likely future as we continue to find out more about the solar system and beyond. The real pleasures of this park are the interactive areas where Dads will have to take their place in... More

Not the largest park you will find but a great place for a day fun with kids all ages. Planetarium is aging and a bit boring but the IMAX movie is very nice and they have a large selection of activities to spend a full day there.

It depends what you are looking for but this place is more for the children and teenagers and not so much for the couples. The best thing in it are the movies about the space which are made in a good quality and quite exciting.
