Cosmodôme, Space Science Centre
A perfect place to keep the kids happy for a day, this museum and interactive extravaganza is dedicated to the history and future of space exploration and science. Explore the museum at your leisure or take a guided tour with one of the trained employees. The Cosmodome is well known for its three and six day space camps held in the summer; kids get to ride in space flight simulators and meet actual astronauts and space scientists.
Today, my 4 year old daughter, my six year old son and I were very enthusiastic to go and visit the Cosmodome. Call me old fashion, but if you're a client, priority to serve is a first not the chit chat on lunch break, or unorganised cash register...so we listened and waited. That was only the beginning. The kind lady after resolving work issues with her coworker said we'd wait +- 30 minutes before our tour Mission. But we can visit around. So we did. We visited...then we waited and waited...my daughter was getting impatient, So I looked at the time...60 minutes waiting. No too happy either. Yet it indicated that the presentation was expected to happen in 1 minute. Well that minute lasted 30 minutes...more. Fare enough my 4 year old daughter was just not liking anymore the tour once we were in our Mission tour. Luckily, my son stayed enthusiastic. I commented on the wait to the employee. He explained that it was an approximation. Instead of a minute, he should have mentioned an 1 hour...we would have probably done something else. This was a disappointment. Why not set a fixed schedule that we can google, like the Planetarium. This would be more accomodating for young families.
