A theme park focused on space and our conquests in it, Cite de l'espace is an immensely popular museum filled with interactive exhibits for the whole family. Children and space enthusiasts enjoy the full-scale models, including the 55 m (180 ft) Ariane 5 rocket, the Mir space station, and the Soyuz modules. A control room mock-up allows you to prepare a rocket for launch, assisting with its flight plan and then placing a satellite into orbit. Be sure to visit the Australia building, with its 300-seat IMAX cinema and a 280-seat planetarium equipped with a hemispherical 600 sq m (6,458 sq ft) screen.

It's a great city, lot of space exhibits for all ages! Everywhere there are explanations labels in 3 languages French, English and Spanish. The staff that working there want to help but they speaking only French and that's why they don't want to anwser questions... It's a museum for all over the word but I give 4/5 stars because the staff is not speaking English.
Place definitely to be visited. Lots of space info both for kids and adults 4 hour's is far to little. We will be back
