A weekendwith the kids

Here are some suggestions for activities and visits to enjoy with the kids during a family break in Toulouse.

An unforgettable family weekend!

Combining wonderment and discovery, your family weekend in Toulouse offers the promise of lots of fun and some unforgettable moments.

Kick off your break by heading to the Cité de l'Espace for a journey to edge of the Universe. You can see a piece of the moon up close under the microscope, step aboard the Mir Space Station...Rendezvous at the Météo Hub to understand the atmosphere and learn about weather forecasting. The 360° screen at the Planetarium literally plunges you into Outer Space, whilst the 3D IMAX cinema and its 6-story high screen guarantees you big thrills and unforgettable memories. Younger children haven't been overlooked either, thanks to the Stellarium and its animated short films.

Toulouse is the city of Airbus. The Aeroscopia Museum is an extraordinary playground and, on its tarmac, you can explore Concorde, the A400M military aircraft, the impressive Super Guppy, an airplane designed to transport other airplanes (actually, parts of airplanes)! Take your seat aboard a simulator and pilot an aircraft. Discover how the various parts of an aircraft are assembled, learn about the different trades that are involved in the world of aeronautics and create your very own family airline!

Come back down to earth at Le Muséum. Where does Mankind come from? What is biodiversity? What is an earthquake? Discover the breathtaking display of the skeleton wall: 75 skeletons set within a wall of glass 6 metres high. Here, everything is designed for you to learn whilst having fun. Remember to prepare your visit at Le Muséum's web site that features a programme of activities that are ideal for kids.

To astound and amaze children and parents alike, rendezvous at The Hall of La Machine to see the immense Minotaur and his servant, the Giant Spider...here you explore the world of the Veritable Machinists of the La Machine Company. You can step into the temple that rests on the back of the Minotaur for a stroll into the heart of the Montaudran quarter to see close up how the machinists work this gigantic puppet.

Visit with the kids

Tour the city aboard the little tourist train and enjoy the audio-guide commentary that is available in several languages. If you want a slightly longer tour, jump aboard an open-top Citytour bus for a circuit of the city with audio-guide that lasts one hour (commentary is also available in several languages). Thanks to its hop-on hop-off format, you can stop and get back on whenever and wherever you like!
