There is a big emphasis on space based communications technology at this museum - with the show in the Radome being the centre piece. It is an excellent sound and light show utilising this enormous satilite receiving dish as a prop. The dish (enclosed is...More

We enjoyed this museum which retraced the history of telecommunications, below sea cable laying and the first transatlantic TV program. Lots of artifacts and history related to this location. Worth the detour. The site also offers exhibits tailored to kids.

We went there on a dull day weatherwise hoping to occupy our 11 year old grand-daughter for an hour. Two and a half hours later hunger drove us away. Lots to see and do, very clean and well presented. The son et lumiere show was...More

Great fun, very clean and today. The illusions area was the highlight for us and a trip inside the Radome (we unfortunately went on a day when there was not an english translation but there are days when the production is in English.). The 3D...More

You would expect this kind of museum rather in a big city than in this remote part of northern France. We went there with high expectations and were pleased with the variety of items and things to see and do, also for kids. The Radome...More

The good bits - the radome (and the horn) especially with the somewhat bonkers son et lumiere (the 2.30pm show is in English), some of the cutting edge demonstrations (a live packet routing demo was particularly cool), and - currently - the extensive optical illusions...More
