There is an exhibition on many planets, galaxies and astronomy, the place needs maintance. With lots of bottoms to push on and many colorful lights, the visit may benefit from some guided explanations. The staff is formed in majority by unmotivated public agents that work...More

Although with a high potential, the attractions are poor, far from exciting and the infrastructure is not that good (a few parking lots, for example).

Interesting place. You can have an idea about the universe. Good accessibility for disable people, less in the main attraction, where the wheelchair user need to stay in the aisle. There is free parking and close parking near.
