Head to this French rocket launch base near the Kourou region. Enter a world of space legends and let the countdown begin!


Come and visit the base and let us guide you through with itineraries each week organised by the centre. From Ariane to Soyuz or Vega, come and marvel at rockets more than 50 metres high!


Explore the space museum filled with interactive activities, allowing you to further understand the history of space exploration or the first moon landing. Fun and virtual workshops make you feel like you're actually there!


Come and watch the Ariane rocket launch from your very own space observation site. Share in the excitement of the countdown before gazing at a spectacular take-off, then hold your breath and watch the different stages of lift-off on a giant screen, as well as how scientists launch satellites into orbit!
