In 1997 and 1998, Avesta Group implemented its skills in management and coordination to construct a unique scientific park dedicated to space and its study.

 

An Adventure Like in the Space

The Cité de l’Espace (City of Space) is a scientific theme park intended for the space and the conquest of space, dedicating as much to the astronomy as to the astronautics. It was developed by the initiative of the City of Toulouse with the cooperation of numerous partners.

 

A Unique Experience

In total, it has over 250 exhibition pieces, most of them interactive, and they give the opportunity to the visitors to admire, test, learn and dream!
In The City of Space, exploration is a unique experience, with life-sized space vehicles as: the 1st generation Soyouz space vessel and the replica of Mir, the famous space station in which dozens of Russian cosmonauts are trained and, the Ariane 5 rocket, 53 metres tall.
