I went with my school on a trip from the UK for 5 days I believe and we stayed in their hostel on site. I loved all the activities, the teams were brilliant and helpful and great for the age...

Well I liked it - probably because it was a bit naff - and anything with an ageing bit of British rocket history rusting outside (Rolls-Royce engines!) gets my vote. The audio tour is pleasantly eclectic (listen out for the Abba cameo) - as it desperately tries to place Belgium in the centre of the European space effort. The lunar... More

We only went here because the weather was bad and we were looking for something to do inside. However we found it to be very interesting and informative. It is not a walk round and look at stuff place. You go on a video tour with headphones so it is all in the correct language. And my two kids just... More

The kids ages varying from 6-12 all found it very dificult and extremely boring. Only the short 5D cartoon and moonwalk were ok. The other cool stuff was only available if you are there on a 'specific mission' (abd costs a lot). The adults found it midly interesting. Wouldn't recommendent it. And Skip the planetarium.

We visited the Euro Space Centre as the weather was a little cold for another outdoor activity. The visit is well organised and you move through different rooms listening to an audio guide in your chosen language. Our youngest child (4) got bored quite quickly by the exhibition but the other two (9 and 12) were happy for the duration... More

The euro space center is a nice place to bring your kids for a short visit to learn something about space exploration and space industry. Nice exhibition, including audio guide. Also some interactive parts, like moonwalking in a simulator (small extra fee, worth it). Planetarium is nice as well. Contra: although it saves time, you are kind of forced to... More

The exhibition is mainly audio guide, very few mock ups, or real staff, but the ones are there you have the feeling that all made in 1970, placed there and did not touch since then. Including cleaning.You have the general feeling that the whole museum stucked in the eighties. the planetarium is a joke. Staff extremly unfriendly. Does not worth... More

Arrived without booking and did the spacewalk/ planetarium experience. There were 6 of us, 2 grandparents 2 adults and 2 under 11's. What a fabulous day. All ages catered for and we all learnt something whilst having fun.

It's difficult to know where to start. Finding it is easy enough and parking is fine but the actual attraction itself is like a throwback to the 70's. Fort example, the 'planetarium' is basically an overturned large wooded barrel complete with wooden bench slat seating, very uncomfortable. The rest is just walking about looking at poorly made recreations. Might be... More
