Lots to do and see - tried to improve our French while watching the show. 7 year old loved the short 4d experience- good afternoon out very reasonable kids under 12 free.

On a rainy day we spent nearly 3 hours here (including the obligatory gift shop). The radome exhibit itself was an informative and pretty impressive show. Sessions are available in English on certain days. In the main exhibition space, our 5 year-old liked the hands-on stuff best of course, but also enjoyed learning about satellites, telephones and undersea cables. Most exhibits were in working order and well thought-out, although there were big queues for some by the late afternoon (we weren't the only ones to think this was a good idea for a rainy day). Probably best to eat before or after a visit as the cafe looked quite limited.

The Cite, Breton Village and Planetarium are all on a very well kept site. Plenty of parking and picnic tables all around.
The Cite is a testament to developments in communications. The "centrepiece" is The Radome. The first Transatlantic TV broadcast was made here.
It is now used to tell the story of that event. English is only spoken on Friday afternoon, so we had to listen to the French version.
Typically French, it was 10 minutes of entertainment spread over 30 minutes! The light show was a tad disappointing.
Having said that, there are plenty of exhibits, both in and out doors to keep you amused.
Some of the older methods of communication are the most enjoyable. Morse code and a signal station eg.
We stayed for over 2 hours and the entrance price made it very good value.
Recommended for all ages.

Great fun, very clean and today. The illusions area was the highlight for us and a trip inside the Radome (we unfortunately went on a day when there was not an english translation but there are days when the production is in English.). The 3D film was a little disappointing however.

You would expect this kind of museum rather in a big city than in this remote part of northern France. We went there with high expectations and were pleased with the variety of items and things to see and do, also for kids. The Radome Show itself, well, we listened to it in french, was a bit strange, but with the impressive setting still worth. After 3 hours the museum was closing for the day, otherwise we would stay even longer.
