Cite de l'Espace, Toulouse

(3.7/5 based on 1,600+ 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.

  • The city of space, discover how men have conquered space, Sputnik in 1957 to the present. Through a great course, permanent exhibitions immerse you in all stages of the life of an astronaut, since his departure into space from the launch Center to the Observatory where he studies the universe. In the Park of the city of space, discover the replica of Mir, the famous Russian space station and that of the Ariane 5 rocket, high of 5.53 meters, as well as satellites in real size.

  • Entry price to stand in line all day. Base there is good, it's interesting, but we want to make the figure at all costs so we sell tickets well beyond capacity. Everything is taken by storm, everything is crowded, we take advantage of anything. Whether for exhibitions, attractions, restoring more than summary in gold, he have to queue again and again... Try possibly excluding season and school holidays. Otherwise: Run!
