  • Once again wanted to go look at Space Expo, especially now that the Soyuz TMA-03 m Descent module of André Kuipers. Wonderful afternoon, kids can have fun always fine. We'll be back!

  • We were there on the day of the Open House and had a wonderful insight into the technology of satellites and spacecraft. There were many local employees, who answered questions extensively on models. An interested, for all technology needs.

  • An interesting exhibition both in Dutch, English, German. Learning by doing, many small gadgets partially charged (1 euro for the Soyuz capsule). Not traceable at the high entrance fees of €12. There is no student discount. Of Katwijk (approx. 2 km) very good walking distance.

  • A pleasant, laid back museum. Not too large, but with nice specimens and explanations about the history and current situation of space exploration. The ancient object I remember from 20-odd years ago when I visited with my grandfather are still there, and time has not been too friendly to them, but on overall this is a wel maintained museum, well worth the entry-fee.
  • Very nice place for kids to go to (not too young, 7 or older I guess). Not that large. I don't know about the extra train bit, because kids need to be 9 or older to get to the other building. Interesting for anyone interested in milkyway, space, astronauts.
  • Fantastic for kid's parties. Groups of 10/15 kids are guided around space marvels in astronaut suits (properly sized). Guides are patient and well trained and kids get curious ad excited.
  • It's a nice Museum for people interested in space, also for kids. It is rather small and the tours could be a bit more inspired. But overall very nice and worth a visit!
  • The kids party is poor. With all the technology they have at their disposal, the party boils down to them going in the museum space then getting to pick a small carton of drink each: an interesting choice of blue, orange or red (I should have known at this point the low level of inspiration at work) then going around the museum with the guide telling about the artifacts, before literally the last 5 minutes was given over to hurrying through and not being able to finish an anyway dull and conventional answering of sheet of questions. Apart from this, outside they got to fire up bottles of water into the air: the kind of thing kids get to do at scouts, which even there is little more than a lark, and pretty pathetic for the Space Expo. An incredibly uninspired event from an organisation not even trying to be interesting.
