On Friday 5 June 2020, Cité de l’espace will have the pleasure of greeting you for a discovery of Space and the wonders of the Universe.
Reception conditions in compliance with current sanitary standards have been set up to guarantee the safety and security of our visitors and staff.
Our reception staff have been trained to respect the requisite barrier gestures. Cleaning and disinfection protocols have been reinforced. We have set up specific rules for visitors flow.
Face masks must be worn by everyone over age 11 (single-use masks or those made of fabric), not only for your protection but also to protect other visitors, except in the 4-hectare scientific gardens.
A stylus will be given to each group of visitors (family) on arrival, for use with all our touchscreens.
Hydroalcoholic gel will be available: hand washing is mandatory to enter the site.
One-way visiting: a special discovery circuit has set up in our permanent and temporary exhibitions for the comfort and protection of all visitors.
Specific signage has been set up to help respect physical distancing between each visitor. We count on you to meet the challenge!
The number of spectators is limited in the Planetarium and Stellarium to respect the proper physical distance between each visitor or family group.
THE ENTIRE SITE IS OPEN TO THE PUBLIC
Cité de l’espace features 4 hectares of scientific gardens with many spacecraft (Lunar module, satellites, MIR station, Ariane 5, Chang’e-4, etc.) to be discovered or admired.
95% of the exhibition elements are open. All our activities and shows have been adapted.
Only the Terr@dome, access on board the Soyuz spacecraft, Cité des Petits (children’s attraction) and Apollo Mission activity remain temporarily closed to guarantee your safety.
