Cosmodôme

Recommended
The Cosmodôme opened in 1994 with a mission to "promote the study and practice of space science and technology." A replica of an Ariane rocket stands in front of the ultramodern complex. In the Space Science Centre, interactive exhibits, replicas and models, as well as mural panels and videos, introduce visitors to the history and exploration of space. Don't miss the moon rock and the Apollo program space suit donated by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA). Next-door, Space Camp Canada offers space-oriented educational activities for children and young people along the lines of the American space training programmes.
