Definitely visit the space museum if you're in Toulouse, very easy to access on the bus, 20 mins from the main station, there's lots to see and it needs a day, the imax is great, but remember to keep your ticket with you as you need to show it for entry to imax the Mir space station was very interesting...

I'm not one to write reviews but felt I had to write one here after seeing all the people giving this place 1 star. Anyone who didn't enjoy themselves at Cité de l'espace need their heads examined. I am 32 years old, I went with my girlfriend who's 24 and my parents who are both in their 60's and we... More

I went there for gala diner after the space exhibition. It has very interesting things like a real size maquette of Ariane, real size maquette of Mir space station which I went inside it and see all the equipment in it. I recommend visiting this museum especially for people who are fond of space activities.

We visited on a bank holiday Sunday, leaving the city centre by underground a couple of stops then catching a bus for the short journey. I dont speak French but it was still pretty... More

What an exciting trip! This amazing place offered a wild range of knowledge about everything related to space in 3 different languages (French,English and Spanish.) Not only educational but fun, Cite de l'Espace is suitable for all ages and a great way to teach children all about space. However, the quiz was only available in French so I would not... More

The attraction outside are really interesting. Inside, too much screen and few real hardware. Worth to go, but be ready to pay 25€ / people Come at least at 1 pm, closes at 6 pm, a bit to early.

There is a lot to keep you entertained, from satellites, conservation and of course space travel. walk on the moon, try out your stamina on the zero-gravity seat. Walk through the MIR space station.
