    Visit interesting has to do with older children or teenagers... the condition do not have visiting Museum Noordwijk, the city of the species or the city of the Sciences of Paris;... otherwise cel seems a little "small and a bit"dated"... Let's say it's a good"viiste of initiation"in the world of space..." Internships are very expensive... The cafeteria is to avoid... include a short stop in one of the best hostels of the regon.

    Since my childhood I dreamed to go (we often spent in front of on the road vacation!). From the top of my 27 years, and always passionate about the conquest of space, I finally decide to round-trip (180km in my case) to find out and discover to my niece the Euro Space Center. And we mixed! It starts with our visit to the cafeteria: chaotic. I wouldn't review all encountered flats but be aware that the wait was quite long (despite the lack of people), many of the dishes were not available (I quote: "we are again, you must wait 15 minutes") and that the requested items are not taken into account (I ask rice instead of the fries with my meatballs) It tells me that there's no worries and I finally get a plate of fries!). Let's talk about the Euro Space Center itself. We start by walking on the Moon and Mars, ridiculously short, but very friendly to chain by the planetarium. My opinion cannot be impartial on this one because I did the New York Museum of history natural "Hayden Planetarium". Unfortunately, the version of the Euro Space Center is extremely small, and has a pretty annoying audio problem (music in the Atria is not synchronized with the band his outdoor... suddenly, the two bands sound at the same time sometimes take the appearance of a cacophony!). Welcome the film which is relatively complete and well balanced in terms of the information. However I regret that this activity is in supplement. It deserves to be included in the €12 visit "classic". The classic tour now. She deserves to be original: we follow an audio guide of rooms rooms for review of many themes (universe, spacecraft, history of the special...). The second room (which has units of astronomical measurements, the history of the planets, etc.) really appealed to me because it is designed as a show (and it is even possible to "manipulate"!). In addition, the information is very interesting. And this is unfortunately the only positive element of the course. The rest is that a sequence of "turn now to this screen!"... I expected to see many more elements from space shuttles through screens. I expected to get into real pieces of gear with lots of explanations about the "life of the astronauts"... We visit one restored and again, I quote the voice of the audio-guide: "he must use his imagination". This trail is so sorely lacking interactivity and inventiveness for 2017, I got the impression to visit a creation of 1997! Cinema 4 d which concluded the visit (already seen and reviewed!) does not alter the situation. Final story: was the documents given at the start of visit when returning to the House, we learn that a (huge) outdoor circuit at the site allows you to discover many models in real sizes... but person (staff and Fund) tells it us at the entrance and/or during the visit (of the type "do not miss..."). Too bad. So I'm a little disappointed and, as such, does not recommend a visit to the Euro Space Center despite the positives: certain information very well explained, a friendly staff and a "unique" path!

    I wanted to visit the euro Space Center because I am enthusiastic about space. Just the opportunity to train as an astronaut himself fascinated me. Since I already have the ' astronaut training experience' at the Kennedy Space Center and the adult space Academy in Huntsville, Alabama was able to get to know, I wanted now to the European offshoot to Belgium. The missions need to be booked in advance, what is not so easy. Because we wanted to make the Mission in English, at any rate, this is the better for us, unlike French instructions. At some point it has then the booking fuuund we had even the 'request training' Discovery - mission, the most comprehensive program in the euro Space Center. the two-day fun per person, including accommodation and catering costs €150. A fair price I think. The arrival was on Saturday to 10: 00. It's not worth even, more likely to be there, because previously everything has closed. At the reception, a room was assigned to us. We were quite happy that 10-bed room only for two to occupy. A shower for the rooms available, and the toilets were in the hallway. Certainly not more quite timely. The accommodations are strongly made. For a classroom determined somehow feasible. And for one night and for two, okay. Most of the activities will take place in the large gym. Coach explains very good and full enthusiasm of the crew ansteckender. The first is on the zero gravity wall. Our weight is balanced by water-filled container, so we hover on a construction along vertically upwards. Our mission: We should repair a satellite there. This works very well and we really had fun. In the multi axis trainer, astronauts practice to control a space capsule that is out of control. We have the task to paint lines on a sheet of paper, while one is wild whirled through the area. A great experience. The multi axis trainer in the United States but slightly more intense were felt. The Moon/Marswalk is a fascinating thing. It sits on a chair which is attached to a structure. Thus, the gravity can be reduced a little. Namely, 1/6 or 1/3 of the Earth's gravity. Thus, each participant experienced as it is to take a walk on the Moon and on Mars. It makes huge jumps, to get from A to B. A VR goggles make sure that it no longer needs the exercise Hall to sign up, but a virtual Mars - or moon's surface. Very impressive. The swivel chair is another great experiment with self-experiential character. Tried it out. Is not bad one. Very good learning effect. In between we were able to demonstrate our craft arts. Under the guidance of each family built a small rocket, which we then also shot down. Just for the smaller a nice experience. We met in the meantime also the Museum. To do this, I must say that this is very nicely decorated. Exclusively for the Museum, I would be driving but no 5 hours. The activities however were well worth it. As a conclusion, a simulated space shuttle took place mission. 2 people that were in the shuttle simulator, the others had their task in the Mission Control Center. On such a mission, you must have been fun (like me), to really like it. So is my impression. The Simulator provides a good successful cockpit of a shuttle. During the mission, many buttons are to operate. The Simulator has come but rather in the years. It made me while mega fun. I could however imagine that children sit not over an hour focused on the shuttle and switch. The Simulator, especially since neither moves nor a sound is heard and there are no simulated view out there. There have really a little what the simulators in the United States, this one. Yet an all around great experience. Theme canteen. Actually, the canteen looks quite good. But improvement is the Organization in it. Somehow we often didn't know where we should go. At breakfast the bread was out on time and you had to wait forever, there was new. It was all somewhat messy. The food itself I would classify with 'sufficient'. After the first day, there were eating away at an Asian buffet. The restaurant is situated about 15 km away. The buffet is already included in the €150 total price and the food was really excellent. A great selection. Summary for the 2 days of discovery mission: + Super activities + good + motivated crew trainer + good price / performance ratio - accommodation borderline - canteen can be improved - certificate of completion would the thing complete

    We had a group-reservation with a dedicated tour guide. Very nice programme for team building. Both physical and intellectual challenges.

    Not bad, but.... Having seen the Udvar Hazy museum near Washington DC and having experienced the Log Ride and 4D Magic in Sentosa Singapore, this center, which is so far away from Brussels did not impress me much. The ticket is pricey too. The moon and mars walks offer a new experience though.

    Educative and fun. The moon walk is a must try. A great family day out.

    Perfect on a rainy day with kids (our 4 year old was perhaps too young to really be interested)

    Cool place, hidden gem. You can see real Ariane 4 rocket.
