The attraction outside are really interesting. Inside, too much screen and few real hardware. Worth to go, but be ready to pay 25€ / people Come at least at 1 pm, closes at 6 pm, a bit to early.

I was there with my kids on Jan. 1st, knowing that most of all other attractions in Toulouse would be closed. Very good that the Cite de l'Espace was open. It was very cold outside, so we mainly enjoyed the indoor exhibitions, the Planetarium and the IMAX theatre (great that they are both included in the main ticket) The only... More

Information overload so you will need to spend at least 4 hours here. There is LOTS to see and read. Films are great, as well as static exhibits with lots for children and adults alike to do. Restaurant food was good and ok value.
