Cite de l'espace, Toulouse

3.8
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.

  • Contrary to what I had heard, the city space is really something to do! Quite a few attractions, movies, life-size reproductions. You feel tiny and it is really marvelled at the beauty of the universe and its complexity. I'd go off season and stay all day to really do everything. It must also be a minimum space enthusiast to enjoy.

  • Quality of the menu, except that it is served warm nothing say. But what about the service? The number of waiters and waitresses would like more attention. I went myself pick up bread and water. A day of week end September, it did not work is on the feet. Too bad because the price was attractive.

  • Park on the theme of space: the place is nice but even when addressing an audience of 10 years and more interested to space and space adventure with already some knowledge in these areas.

  • Overall very nice with lout of stuff to do and interactive stuff. The restaurant staff however could have been more service minded and therefore a star less.
  • Great day out for 4 adults! Off season so we could fully explore and play with all the exhibits haha. The Imax experience was simply incredible
  • Cool mais pas tres cool. Je m'attendait à plus.
  • Very interesting exhibits, a great experience for everyone. A little more expensive than I would have expected, hence only 4 stars.
  • Tickets are quite a lot of money but well worth it, amazing views and atmosphere.

Where to stay in Toulouse

Staying in the Saint Cyprien district on the west side of the Garonne River is a fabulous way to enjoy Toulouse. Consider a stay in one of the district’s historic hotels. Alternatively, you can take full advantage of the city’s nightlife with a stay in the Arnaud Bernard district, where bars and cafes line the streets.
