  • visit to do with time available to read the many information on the panels... Nice overview of the space conquest... Lots of activities for children... Adults may remain a fear on their hungry... the place deserves to be develop and present more items in connection with the activity of the Guiana Space Center. Little shop at the exit with a limited choice for technical aspects such as the construction of the centre, the departures of rocket, etc.

  • If visiting Kourou, a quick visit to the museum is a must. Among others, this is where you will be able to procure mission t-shirts and polo shirts.
  • The free tour of the facilities is really interesting. We see all the areas of momentum. We learn many things. However the Museum is really irrelevant. The half of things are broken and does not work. Very very disappointing on this side here. If noteworthy just the Museum there just 1 star. The problem also is that children do not have the right to make the tour of the facilities. I don't know why. So someone must stay behind and do not make the visit. And seen that there is nothing to do free for children in the area have to pay the entrance of the Museum and the them having a good time.

  • Cyber attack so no animation. Too bad! Panel for children very well made.
