  • Very well run attraction and an interesting insight into the European Space programme. The staff explained everything in simple non-scientific language and the tour of the site is well worth taking.  more »

  • 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.

  • Small friendly Museum to conclude the visit of the CSG. Fun for children and parents. To see pieces of launcher up close and in detail.

  • Really at years lights of Toulouse. But given the tourist potential its no wonder. The Museum is especially oriented for children. Really a pity that there is nothing that explains or do visit sites
