This place has a lot to offer not only for kids but for adults as well. A lot of information about space and its exploration. Very interesting and educational. Will fill a lot of knowledge gaps in space subject.

The Space Expo is a small museum connected to the European Space Agency. It's a good idea to spend 1hr with kids. There are many interactive activities. My kids loved the moon gravity simulation, the lego table and the rockets.

We visited the Space Expo, and we got so much information, incredible. They have a new part that combines space and the human sensors. Not only does it show new space elements; it also links this to seeing, smelling, hearing and touching space. I was...More
