Space City

Recommended
Visible from a distance thanks to its rocket and the eccentric structure by Henri-Georges Adam (1904-1967), now an exhibition hall, the Cité de l'Espace (city of space) aims to provide an educational and amusing means for visitors to discover, experiment and understand the universe. While the kids are trying their hand at being astronauts, engineers or astronomers, step out on the moon (thanks to the Moon Runner simulator), climb aboard Mir station or gaze at the life-size model of Ariane 5.
