  • A lot of space (Yes it is the title at the same time...!) but not much except to read signs inside. Didn't want to do so quickly made the turn. Expensive for delivery. Small friendly shop and toilets (as the visit finally useful...). Go there at least to see the model of the rocket just before: impressive.

  • 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.
  • 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.
