Space Expo is the visitor centre of ESA ESTEC in Noordwijk, the Netherlands. At our museum you will learn more about the wonderous world of space and spacetravel.

At Space Expo, you will discover the world of space travel in all its facets. From designing and building space missions on earth to launching them into space. Touch a real meteorite, launch a hydrogen rocket and take a look inside André Kuipers' original Sojoez capsule. Throughout the years, the museum's collection has been expanded with beautiful showpieces. There is also a lot of attention for the history of space travel and you can walk through a model of the International Space Station (ISS).
