Inspirock Rating:
3.7/5 based on 1,400+ reviews on the web
A theme park focused on space and our conquests in it, Cite de l'Espace is an immensely popular museum filled with interactive exhibits for the whole family. Children and space enthusiasts enjoy the full-scale models, including the 55 m (180 ft) Ariane 5 rocket, the Mir space station, and the Soyuz modules. A control room mock-up allows you to prepare a rocket for launch, assisting with its flight plan and then placing a satellite into orbit. Be sure to visit the Australia building, with its 300-seat IMAX cinema and a 280-seat planetarium equipped with a hemispherical 600 sq m (6,458 sq ft) screen.

  • Interesting site, but found most children facing juvenile. Museum tells story about space and its conquest by man.

  • The Park is small enough. I expected more. We did the tour in half a day. Games and attractions are very (too) oriented for children. Rate appears me high. But we had still a good time.

  • Is it's part to learn a little more about space is it's mystery! On the means and tools designed and use by humans in order to discover this infinite space. This Park is suitable for the child and the adult attention even when the children are not too small is the discovery and science you still listen and be interested! I recommend it strongly we easily spend half a day in!

  • Nice exhibition of the history of aircraft industry. A great way spend half your day if interested in aircrafts.
  • A nice place to visit with family or with friends. Great exhibitions on space and regular events during the week with researchers, engineers, space fans... A good experience for locals and tourists.
  • A great visit for young and adult. As an engineer I really loved it.
  • I spent a great time to visit all areasareas of the "Cité de l'Espace", which are very well maintened, with nice explanations for everyone and many games to learn while playing for children. There are also nice games to uncover differently space or out of earth world : for instance one of them enable to live a walking-on-the-moon experience with a very complex device very well designed. For every person interested in space, new technologies and sciences, this place will be your favorite one in Toulouse, or even in Europe :).
  • Great experience for the whole family!!! It's a great way to learn all about space and space travel.
