The Cité de l'Èspace on the outskirts of Toulouse is a fabulous theme park, a place for discovering, experimenting and learning about the universe.

The park was opened in June 1997 and contains full-scale models of rockets and the Mir space station. Two huge planetariums (140 and 280 seats) put on spectacular shows throughout each day, while the Terradome tells the history of space from the 'Big Bang' to the solar system as we know it today.

Cité de l’Espace, on the outer ring road, is a unique concept, and the sort of inter-planetary experience wherein children might never know you had gone as you slip back into town for lunch (not that you have to, of course).

You need a full day to explore the whole site, and can reserve a table at the Astronaut Café on arrival.
