Cite de l'Espace, Toulouse
(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. 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. Put Cite de l'Espace into our Toulouse trip itinerary planner and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • A very accessible approach to space and its conquest. We learn lots of things that one has already initiated or not. Just let themselves go.

  • It is with great pleasure that visited Cosmic town. Learned a lot. A paradise for children. There is a restaurant and Café. You can leave and return ticket is valid all day or two days, depending on the tariff. Admittedly, the ticket is expensive.
