La Cité de l'espace

Industrial, aeronautical and spatial discovery


Contemplating the Ariane 5 rocket, admiring the treasures of outer Space, discovering the secrets of the Universe, dreaming with your head in the stars... You can do all this and more at the Cité de l`Espace.

For young and old alike, the Cité de l`Espace offers you a journey into the world of Space. The 2,500m² of exhibitions are revealed through a fun and interactive tour where you can explore all the stages in the life of an astronaut. You can even learn about meteorology with a forecaster from Météo France.

In the gardens you can see real spacecraft such as the Mir Space station or the Soyuz capsule. For younger ones: go to the Ariane rocket launch pad to discover the Cité des Petits. Here, children can train to become astronauts or engineers: preparing the rocket, organising the launch mission and heading for the Space station!

Want to travel to the farthest reaches of the cosmos? Come aboard the planetarium which shows you the solar system thanks to new interactive and immersive technology.
The IMAX 3D cinema and its giant screen invite you on an adventure into the depths of the solar system to meet the asteroids.

Join the immersive animation "The Rovers take the stage". In the heart of a Martian crater, discover the animated, life-size replicas of the Perseverance (NASA) and Zhurong (China) rovers, which are currently evolving on the Red Planet in search of traces of past life.

At the Cité de l`Espace, discovering outer Space and the wonders of the Universe has never been so easy!
