(3.7/5 based on 1,500+ 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.

  • We started our tour (with little brother of 7 years) with a small very interesting film followed by exhibitions and activities inside. We heard a lot of things about space and space stations, it was well explained and animated. Early in the afternoon, we walked outside could test a Soyuz training capsule, we visited the Ariane and station staff... An intellectual and interesting day. To do but it's great we must go early in the morning and pick a day or weather to enjoy this journey into space!

  • At the opening of the site, we started our tour by the exhibitions inside because there was fog. Therefore, the morning was devoted to various activities, information, games... After lunch, we walked outside. We learned a lot of things, and this in a fun way! Very interesting activity. To do!

  • This is similar to the city of Arts and Sciences in Valencia but much more smaller and adapted for children. I would not recommend it unless you have time to spare in Toulouse! Better go and see any people out there about.

  • 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.
  • Nice exhibition of the history of aircraft industry. A great way spend half your day if interested in aircrafts.
  • You can see the Ariane rockrt and a Soyuz spacecraft on display.
  • Great experience for the whole family!!! It's a great way to learn all about space and space travel.
  • A great visit for young and adult. As an engineer I really loved it.
