    The Museum lack of attractiveness - a lot of panels to read without special animation. ... We expect better of a museum attached to a high-tech centre

    Nice space showing the conquest of the sky and space, and the contributions of the France and Europe in the field. If certain information would deserve a little update and a few welcome interactive media, fans of rockets and space programs will find their account. In reality, nothing that reproduction full-size launcher Ariane 5 lording it over the car park is worth a visit, but I imagine that fades of mechanics would be also untenable in the section presenting these gear drive systems. Several events take place by 1/2 day and a Lego corner offers small and big to build their own rocket. Visit coupled with the visit to the site of the CSG (this requires registration 48 h in advance) to deserve 4 stars. Attention, no possibility of restoration on the spot, but one corner with a few tables and chairs, a coffee machine and a distributor of junk food. In short, bring your picnic or plan to eat elsewhere.

    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.

    Expensive for not much, however I would recommend the visit of the French Guiana Space Center.
