Where can I find a plan ? At what time are the guided tours ?

The Vaisseau is an interactive center, not a museum. There are no guided tours or definite way to visit, trust your children who will spontaneously go towards elements that are right for them.

Are there lockers ?

Lockers are available for individual visitors around the exhibitions. They work with a 1€ deposit, or a token. For groups who made reservations in advance, a cart is provided.

How long does it take to visit the Vaisseau ?

To test out all the interactive elements of the Vaisseau, it would take more than thirty hours ! The best, depending on your children’s age, is to dedicate half a day to the visit. In all cases your tickets allow you to spend the whole day there, if you arrive at opening time.

How do I get to the Vaisseau ?

You will find all the indications to get to the Vaisseau here.

How can I book a space in the cafeteria ?

It is not possible to book a space in the cafeteria. If your inquiry is for a birthday party, there are several offers, including one which includes a room being provided for you. Please contact us if you wish to know more.

Is it possible to bring my own picnic, and eat inside the Vaisseau ?

Yes, you can bring your own sack lunch. A room is made available to you, the 1000 Crumbs room. It is also possible to eat in the garden of the Vaisseau.

Is it possible to smoke in the Vaisseau ?

The Vaisseau is an establishment open to the public and it is forbidden to smoke within its premises. If you wish to smoke you need to exit the structure. Your ticket allows you to exit and re-enter the Vaisseau once in the day.

Are dogs allowed into the Vaisseau ?

​No. Dogs (or any other animals) are not allowed inside the the Vaisseau (even if carried inside a bag) and they may not be left unattended outside the Vaisseau.

The one exception to this rule is guide dogs/assistance dogs.

Is it possible to come back on the same day with my tickets (after a child’s nap for example) ?

Most entrance tickets allow you to exit twice in the day, the second exit being final. Therefore, it is possible to return on the SAME DAY at the Vaisseau after leaving the building for lunch, shopping, or a child’s nap.
