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. 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.

  • Very nice place. Informative but not boring. A lot of manipulations possible to understand. Vivid planetarium show

  • We had the misfortune of not be able to visit the gardens because of the wind which made that day. But they seemed to have good looking, exhibitions of different ships, rockets, satellites inside, entertaining, perhaps more focused children and something did me slow. The best thing the movie in 3D which is translated with the audio. Well, to spend the day and be entertained and learn something, I recommend it. If you go with safe kids who enjoy more
