  • Museum disappointing, such a place would deserve much better. Almost to read signs (might as well go on the internet) and little to see... a shame. However Nice staff.

  • This museum is quite limited, the entrance is 7 euros. It is rather intended for a young audience. There is a gift shop on-site, free parking.

  • A museum which would need to be refreshed and updated. A bit disappointing after a tour of the Space Center who put their eyes!

  • 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.
  • Very interesting tour and reception at the top. I attended the introduction video of installation of a rocket and the stages of launch (I think there are two presentations a day). The lady who presents the video is super friendly, super savvy and takes the time to answer all the questions. Frankly I'm glad!

  • Prices in-store memory, lot of choice especially for children. The visit to the Museum is very interesting and educational to do!

  • A museum get a little older they school. Should be modernized and more interactive.

  • 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.
