  • We saw this crazy place on Tour de France footage, and so made the effort to get there. We absolutely loved it. Everything we were hoping it would be!  more »
  • Very disappointed in the end not to be able to see the stars or the sun with a telescope, under a dome. 45 EUR entry and up the activities are paid and by reservation or broke down the day I climbed. A very nice view certainly, but nothing more than when riding with eggs at a ski resort in the Pyrenees. The small museum is nice and the learning space too. A small astronomical bezel to see the outline of the sun and solar flares. Too bad no one seems to have noticed that the sun changes position and that at noon, it is no longer in the axis of the bezel. The peak of the noon is still a place of scientific research. I would have liked to take part in an observation or at least see an astronomical show included in the ticket. I recommend the city of space in Toulouse. At least the film under the dome shows us the Milky Way.
