Space has always fascinated people. We have so many books with adventures that take place on other planets, on space ships and so on. Man wanted to travel to the outer space – and he has reached the moon and hopes to visit other planets in the future too.
You can imagine that a museum completely dedicated to space would be interesting for many people. And for the kids too!
The Cosmodôme in Quebec, Canada seems to be a great place to visit. Our friend Dan Mitea and his wife were there and sent us some photos too.
But wait! There’s more!
As we find out from the official site beginning in mid-December, new Cosmodôme will present innovative space missions for young people and families. Sylvain Bélair, executive director, Cosmodôme says that “The layout, decor and interactive narrative will combine to give visitors the experience of a space station.”
“As a result of the $10.5 million investment announced in 2009, a newly revamped Cosmodôme will be launching its brand new interactive audiovisual concept in mid-December. Children and families will be offered a choice of three missions—just like in the movies—that are both educational and stimulating, each lasting 60 minutes. Each mission will present challenges that will require them to make decisions as interplanetary explorers, space engineers and space station researchers. The new Cosmodôme promises to become a world-class scientific tourist destination. For the process of transforming the Cosmodôme, the management is relying on the expertise of GSM Prjct, an internationally recognized firm specializing in the design and production of interactive exhibitions that make use of cutting-edge audiovisual and multimedia technologies.“
I think the kids will really love that. But am I saying. Not only the kids, all the people fascinated by space travel and adventure.
So, keep an eye on the site – and than go have fun!
Until then, some photos to see the Cosmodôme now (Endeavour awaits you!).
