    Cosmos is a real gem in Charleville, not far from the airport. The information and exhibits are very good and the outdoor telescopes impressive. Would visit again with the family.  more »

    Even if you don't know anything about the stars and the solar system, you will still enjoy this experience. It has improved immensely since my last visit back in 2006. Unfortunately it was a full moon...  more »

  • Was the best experience on a perfect night. Would do it again.
  • Fantastic place! Awe-inspiring! Going to visit the sun viewing session later! Excited!
  • A little cloudy and a bit chilly but that could not damper a great tour around the Charleville Airport. Monique was our informative guide the knowledge she had gathered and continues to researched was fantastic, but the secret is out Monique has disclosed and devulged all, who could have imagined. For those who have travelled to Charleville and did not take the tour pencil it in for your next visit if you are heading that way make it a priority. Thankyou again Monique good luck with your research. Boris and Lynne Dunn
