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.

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...
